Redesign Of The “Paulineraula”, University Of Leipzig

Competition 2001/2003, Phase 1 + 2

Task: Redesign of the “Paulineraula”, University of Leipzig

Client: Free State of Saxony

The “Paulineraula” is a symbol for the historical center of the University of Leipzig. It’s a place of identity and memory and the main facade defines the image of the University.The design shows that the assembly hall is both integrated and independent part of a superior entity. The exterior skin of the University becomes the interior skin of the assembly hall.

Both buildings express a contentual unity in a never ending dialog between past and future.
