RWTH Aachen Campus Melaten, Aachen

Research Cluster Integrative Production Technology - Structured Aesthetics for Scientists

16 research clusters are being created on the RWTH Aachen Campus in close proximity to the major research institutes and facilities. One of the largest technology-oriented research landscapes in Europe is thus spreading out over more than 2.5 km².

The IMMOFINANZ building complex, which consists of three complex structures designed by the Munich star architects Henn, is characterised by its flexibility, modularity and sustainability. The buildings provide space for around 800 scientists and production technology experts. The basis of our façades are the designs and plans of the architects Henn and the façade planner Rache Engineering required functionality.


Facts and Figures
