FREIBURG | Projects & Construction

Freiburg im Breisgau is a beautiful city in southwestern Germany renowned for its university, southern flair and eco-conscious mentality.

It's also a growing city, thus many projects are coming along.


In Freiburg construction goes on at the new library of the university.

Spectacular city, incredible project. That city is becoming the ideal model of the future city with its eco-friendly buildings and development patterns.

There is already a special thread for this development.

It will depend very much of the material they will use for the cladding, if the library of the university will come out georgeous, or if the building will be a disaster.

For the white panels they have a choice of different colors. I think it's red, black, blue, white and grey. White would look horrible.

The Robert-Bosch-Foundation, owner of the big german company „Bosch“ bought a baroque monastery called “Kartaus” in Freiburg. On the site the foundation wants to build an international school called United World College. That includes the restoration of the baroque building with three wings and a chapel. There are also several old estate buildings, like a water power plant out of the beginning of electrification, which will find a new use.

For the homes of students and teachers there will be build twelve new houses on a slope next to the estate.

The carthusian monastery has its origins in medieval times. It played a little role in the history of the world because one of its monks was teacher of Martin Waldseemüller. Waldseemüller himself was the famous cartographer who used first the name “America” for the land west of the Atlantic Ocean. A facsimile of the map one can find in the Library of Congress.

The main building

The view out of the future homes in direction of the city. In front there is the little water power plant (yellow building) and two other buildings of the estate, which also will be restored.

In front of the monastery there is a baroque garden. Hopefully they will restore it to its former beauty, too.

Works for the new buildings have just started.

A picture of the estate before 1780. In that year the medieval buildings behind the baroque monastery burnt down. On the left side down in the valley one can see the diary farm, which still exists, and will house the future gym of the college.

On the site of a former freight yard there will be the construction of a row of office buildings.

The shell of the first building is already finished.

Library of the University

For the new library cost will rise 10%, and the building will be finished in spring 2014 not in autumn 2013.

But next month they start with the cladding and SSC will see it first

United World College:

The slope is prepared, where they want to build houses for teachers and students. They just started to errect the first three of them.

A new rendering of the houses. Very neo bauhaus.

An interesting site of the project with a lot of plans, pictures and information in English.

^ Please put your rubbish in a bin and don't leave it in the forest. Not everybody knows this rule.
