On 4 November, Astrid Wuttke, partner in schneider+schumacher’s Building Transformation team, will be participating in the conference “Zak World of Façades”. There she will be talking about ‘The fifth facade’ – the glazed roof construction at the Mathildenhöhe exhibition building in Darmstadt. She will use this UNESCO World Heritage site to explain how it is possible to retain the spirit of a building, while also fulfilling today’s building norms. She will also elucidate on how to design flexible concepts for exhibitions appropriate to heritage-protected buildings and how to achieve uniform lighting levels in exhibition spaces.

How to build labs today that also function tomorrow – this is the theme of the laboratory roundtable discussion taking place on 18 and 19 November. Malte Kittelmann from schneider+schumacher and Mathias Handorf from DGI Bauwerk will talk about the practical aspects of planning and erecting lab buildings, using the ZELUBA research building at the Fraunhofer WKI (pictured above) as an example. This new-build project comprises 1700 square metres of office and laboratory space, including a conference room and a testing hall.
