schneider+schumacher has won first prize in a competition for the new headquarters of a subsidiary company of China Merchants Bank and China Unicom. The design of the 180-metre high office tower in Shenzhen is not based on a conventional structure, and was thus able to convince the competition jury. A young company like MUCFC needs modern and communicative office space, not isolated individual offices. While the outer shell appears to be almost austere, and rectilinear, the interior design uses organic forms, reflecting the dynamic of office interactions. The atrium and the open spatial arrangement above it create vistas across, enabling communication across several levels, which helps to animate the building interior. The principle employed here is: hard shell - soft core.

A floating bridge

schneider+schumacher have won second prize in the competition for the Fechinger Viaduct, together with the architect Otto Schultz-Brauns, the civil engineering companies BPR Dr. Schäpertöns Consult and SRP Schneider & Partner, with Rainer Schmidt Landschaftsarchitekten.

As it follows the geometry of the valley, from a distance the bridge radiates a calm serenity. It is elegantly supported by slender, generously spaced double piers, creating an exciting play of light. The two carriageways are separated lengthwise by a gap. Upright supports, additionally emphasised at night by lighting effects, mark the beginning and end of the bridge. The bridge leads drivers coming from Mannheim directly to the gateway of the state capital Saarbrücken, welcoming them to Saarland.

The design attracts attention above all through its clarity and elegance, which creates a feeling of lightness; almost as if the bridge were floating over the landscape.
