“Architecture shapes the future” is the motto of the annual Day of Architecture, where site visits are once again possible this coming weekend.

Among the 117 projects submitted is the IA/IB building complex of the Ruhr University Bochum, which was built in the 1960s. Due to the pollution of the engineering buildings, IA/IB was deconstructed and reconstructed from 2014 onwards.

How do you combine redevelopment and monument protection? What opportunities are offered by the redevelopment? The RUB is a prime example of the German universities founded in the 1960s and 1970s, whose buildings are now aging and in need of renovation.

On Saturday, 26 June, there will be a two-hour guided tour of the IA/IB building complex at 10 a.m., during which two project managers from Gerber Architekten and a representative of BLB NRW will be on hand to answer questions.

Do you have any questions? Then please feel free to contact us by phone at +49 231 9065 175 or by e-mail at info@gerberarchitekten.de.
