After having revitalized the U-Tower as a Centre for Art and Creativity in the course of European Capital of Culture RUHR.2010, Gerber Architekten realised the Robert Bosch vocational college, the Robert Schuman vocational college, an office building and an underground parking area. Situated close to the city center, the new buildings expand the new U-quarter.
The design by Gerber Architekten is a result of Public-Private-Partnership bid, which was rewarded by the City of Dortmund. The construction works were completed two years after the site start in autumn 2015. On Tuesday, 26th April the buildings will be opened with an official ceremony, while the teaching had already started in the meantime.
