Generalverwaltung – Bauabteilung
offices, library, restaurant
3 partially, 5 – 9 building planning
1996 – 1999
The new construction was built for the general administration of the Max Planck Society, the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition as well as the Max Planck Institute for Tax Law and Public Finance. It contains a large scientific library and a restaurant with an attractive open space courtyard.
The planning was carried out in cooperation with Graf, Popp, Streib Architects in Munich. The 6-storey building and underground garage connects the stable grounds to the old-town ring. The two U-shaped buildings incorporate both of Munich’s two main urban development styles, creating thereby clearly defined exterior spaces.
