Designer: Henning Larsen
Contributed by: dirkverwoerd

Der Spiegel Headquarters is a 50,000 square-meter project comprised of two buildings: one for Der Spiegel and another, the Ericus-building, for other offices. With its clearly readable figure each building has a reserved yet characteristic expression that provides a special significance in relation to creating identity for all the surrounding public spaces. The Ericus-building will be essential for the completion of the large park space. Spiegel will become the gateway to Hafencity seen from the main station and Brooktorkai. The two buildings are designed as large U-forms that embrace the urban space they are directed towards. They form two plazas: an arrival plaza for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers towards Brooktorkai and an open public plaza, which has a direct connection to the waterfront promenade. The buildings has been nominated for a gold medal in HafenCity, which is new certification that recognizes the development of sustainable buildings in Germany.

Temporary School Gymnasiumhttp://www.mimoa.eu/projects/Italy/Massa%20Finalese%20%28MO%29/Temporary%20School%20GymnasiumMassa Finalese (MO), Italy
Designer: MIDE architetti
Contributed by: MIDEarchitetti

The new gym (first prize of a public competition) was built after the earthquake that struck the region of Emilia-Romagna in May 2012. The building is a low cost structure completed in just five months thanks to fast construction techniques ensuring the achievement of high-energy performance as well. The project site, located on the boundary between the village and the countryside, is characterized by the presence of two natural elements: the school park trees and the cultivated fields. The architecture is extremely simple: a pure volume, almost monolithic, with only one big opening perceivable from the outside that allows the view of the field from the spectators? seats and the playing field. From the ruins of the destruction the new gymnasium is born: a landmark able to give a new identity to the existing school complex through contemporary architecture, thus contributing to the making of a new figurative and expressive capability for a new start.

The place between the two towers is open to the public and guarantees a breathtaking view over the harbour area. The buildings have only faces, each two equal fronts, the length sides are designed to give a slim and elegant impression. They have no backsides, which means that they have beautiful facades allover: no ugly service supply shafts in sight. And every person working in this building has a window with a view and can enjoy the daylight. "My first buildings with a ´crease´", says Carsten Roth.

Designer: Carsten Roth Architekt
Contributed by: FriedrichPaul

This newly built structure for BMW was created with the vehicle's it shows in mind. But how can a building portray the dynamics of a vehicle fleet? How can the sleekness of a vehicle's silhouette be transferred to architecture? How can a car manufacturer?s brand name value be displayed in a car dealership? These are the essential questions that have been thoughtfully and decisively answered with the new Pre-owned BMW Car Center. BMW unveiled its new showroom in Barsbüttel, a showroom like no other. A space tailored for the BMW driver. The building is an experience as dynamic and luxurious, as powerful and crafted, as the cars themselves; from the 1- Series through the 7-Series. An elegant floating facade fascinates; a drivable ramp literally beckons the visitor in. From outside to inside, the building delivers BMW?s promise of leading edge satisfaction and emotional connection. The vehicles for sale in the 'Pre-owned BMW Car Center' are displayed on the approx. 130-meter long ramp.

The buildings are designed around a piazza and are three stories high with an additional fourth story that forms a penthouse level with access to a wooden decked roof terrace. In addition, a ramp attached to the side of the left most building has been incorporated to access the Sophienterrassen common garage.

Designer: Abscis Architecten
Contributed by: Abscis

The former university hospital (architect Pauli) and research laboratories (architect Cloquet) at the Pasteur Avenue are both protected monuments. After a planning analysis and an overall master plan for the site, there was clearly a need to restructure the inner area between the Pauli- and Cloquet-buildings. The existing building was subjected to a construction, building physics and pathological examination. This study, together with the master plan, resulted in an architectural project in which the protected monument is restored and a new added contemporary architecture gives a new impulse to the site.
