Right next to the Dortmunder U, on a big plot of the former Dortmunder Union brewery, the “Brick City” was build. The design by Gerber Architekten is characterized by the interplay of visual and pedestrian connections and by the use of the existing topography to create a differentiated and transparent open space concept, enlivened by the colour and the material of traditional red fired bricks.

The buildings of the Robert Bosch vocational college and the new Robert Schuman vocational college as well as the underground parking area and the outdoor area was completed recently. The interior will be finished by April 2016.

The competence centre (for education, business and the creative industries) was completed as well. The interior is following and will quite likely be done by Gerber Architekten.
