A new rendering with the current cladding of the library. It would be amazing if the surrounding would mirror that way.

Progress at the buildings. This time out of an other view.

Students and teachers will have a nice view, when the houses are finished.

Towards the east the library will have lots of windows.

The other big project in Freiburg shows much less exiting architecture.

But refurbishment of the baroque abbey goes forward, too.

For a city that prides itself on sustainable design and transportation, why on earth are they building on a pristine greenfield like that?!!? I would like to see the view, if any, that counterbalances that. The rest of the projects are beyond incredible, and are truly 21st century designs in every way!

I think the idea was to use the baroque monastery for this school. That's a goog thing, because the biggest enemy of old landmark buildings is a useless destiny. Then there is nobody who maintains the building. For the school they needed houses for students and teachers, for living. Those buildings had to be nearby. Down on the bottom of the valley there was no possibility to built new homes, since it is a flooding area of the river. The city has plans to widen the river bed, that future floods will make less damage in other areas. That's why they hadn't that much choice. Using this slope was under the circumstances the best solution. Between the new homes and the baroque front garden of the monastery there is a small wetland, which they protect very carefully.

My critic is about the architecture. It turned out that the architect wanted to imitate a mountain village. Unfortunately he thought more at an andalusian village then at a Black Forest village. So we will have houses which would fit perfectly into the Sierra Nevada admist of Black Forest fir trees.

Update for the library.

News from the college. In the backyard they started the auditorium. When it is finished the building will be part of the slope.

The historic truss has to be renovated. So they built an other roof over the whole baroque building.

The so called mountain village gets more and more its final look. Only one building is still missing.

News of the library. Half of the city will mirror in this cladding while it is finished.

It will look best from downtown.

The neighbour buildings are also used by the university. Otherwise people could be disturbed by the reflections.

Bad news for the library. The consulting engineers, who are planning the building equipment went bancrupt. Since their engineers are sought after on the booming german employment market, they found jobs at other companies. The result will be higher costs and a delay in finishing the building.

The cladding of the building is closed now. Also from downtown it looks great.

Drama at the new library. In spring and autumn sun reflected by the cladding blinds car drivers so bad, that traffic is endangered. Now the cladding at the south eastern corner will be mantled in spring and autumn by banners.
