New canteen and office building for GSI

Two conceptual designs reach the final of the architecture competition / Public exhibition of all designs



GSI will build a new canteen and office building with construction costs of approximatel 7 million Euro. Financing is ensured through funds for development of the Helmholtz Association. The start of the construction works is planned for 2014. The new building became necessary due to the continuously increasing number of employees and international researchers on the campus resulting from the construction of the new accelerator facility FAIR at GSI. In an architecture competition two conceptual designs were chosen for a final out of a total number of 11. All designs are exhibited at GSI till 14 December.
