DESCRIPTION: At first glance this is a clearly defined and compact building structure, though its complexity is only revealed through its detail. A windowless wing of rooms forms the heart – the Black Box – of the building. This is enhanced by a frameless artistic casing designed by Professors Göbel and Triebsch from Halle. A delicate pattern is reminiscent of nano structures; using over-imposed large diagonals. Next to the "Gläserne Schatzkästchen" is the three-story laboratory and administration wing, and the two combined create a partly roofed interior courtyard which is open to the public. The façades of these premises are made of light Spanish limestone, and their bands of windows are offset.

For a long time now, my artistic designs have been successfully realised by Glasmalerei to the fullest satisfaction, also of my clients. I greatly appreciate the open-mindedness of the company for the application of innovative technologies, which I can use in my work and which in the past years have had an extremely positive effect on my creative work.
