Featured Project: Jacobs University Sports and Conference Building
January 17, 2013
Architect: Max Dudler Architekten
Location: Bremen, Germany
Function: The mixed-use sports facility and conference center form a dramatic new focal point for Jacbos University in suburban Bremen. The simple rectangular form encircled by brick-clad columns is strongly reminiscent of the Parthenon and the modernist projects of Mies van der Rohe, among others, that it influenced. Drawing from the simplicity of classical form, the basic structural logic allows maximum transparency for the conference and mixed-use spaces, as well as open expanses for athletics.
