RUHR METRO | Projects & Construction

The Ruhr region is one of the five largest conurbations in Europe and is home to approximately 5.2 million people. Over decades, the region has transformed itself from a coal and steel industrial site to a service and culture-oriented metropolis.


In the heart of Europe lies the Ruhr region, which is transforming itself successfully under the new brand name of “Ruhr Metropolis” to a modern cultural, scientific and technological location with a high standard of living. Situated in the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia, the Ruhr Metropolis stretches across 116 kilometres from east to west and 67 kilometres from north to south. The region is criss-crossed by the rivers Emscher, Lippe and by the Ruhr, from which it got its name. Eleven metropolitan cities and four administrative districts are clustered in the Ruhr Metropolis; that is a total of 53 communities which are incorporated in the Ruhr Regional Association.

Coal developed into the most important raw material contributing to the development of the Ruhr region. Industrialisation started in the 19th century and collieries and steelworks drafted workers from all over the world. Today approximately 600,000 people of foreign origin, whose roots lie in almost 200 countries, live in the Ruhr Metropolis. From the 1960s onwards, the coal and steel enterprises became increasingly unprofitable and were gradually decommissioned. The formative coal and steel industry disappeared and the structural transformation began.


The starting shot for the transformation to a location with future was given by the University of Bochum, which was the first university to be founded in the region in 1963. Meanwhile, the Ruhr Metropolis with its more than 20 universities has developed into one of the densest education and research sites. At the same time, the transformation to a centre for knowledge, technology and service has taken place. Approximately 2.2 million people are employed in the region and earn 5.6 per cent of the German gross domestic product.

With the motto “Change through culture – culture through change”, Essen was chosen as the European Capital of Culture 2010 to represent the Ruhr Metropolis. Because the Ruhr region, with its hundreds of museums, theatres, concert venues, festivals und industrial monuments, is also a cultural conurbation. These prerequisites and the special activities offered during the Capital of Culture year drew approximately ten million visitors to the Capital of Culture.

BOCHUM | The Healthcare Campus

The Healthcare Campus | Universitätsstraße

German forum thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1503727

Project facts
  • Cost: 200 Mio €
  • Architect: Leon, Wohlhage, Wernik, Berlin
  • Use: education, research
  • Start of construction: 2010
  • Completion: 1.construction phase 2014

The Healthcare Campus North Rhine-Westphalia is based on the philosophy of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the USA. Forming the most important US authority for biomedical research, the NIH are situated in a campus-like area with more than 75 buildings. All of the NIH institutions are committed to improving people’s health, and (bio-) medical research there covers all of the chief known diseases.

On the Healthcare Campus North Rhine-Westphalia, new insights are to be gained on diseases, and setting out from these, new therapies are to be developed. One of the major topics that the Healthcare Campus North Rhine-Westphalia is concerned with is the aging population. Whether it be cancer diseases, Alzheimer or Parkinson’s disease, many illnesses are confronting society with considerable challenges – especially in Germany, which will have to cope with a steadily increasing share of old people among the population as a whole in the coming decades.

Guided by this notion, concentrating excellent research and development at the Healthcare Campus North Rhine-Westphalia is to result in its belonging to top-level European health research. Its development will be modelled on the concept of the NIH, without actually copying them.

The Healthcare Campus North Rhine-Westphalia is to be established in the Ruhr Region – this was already determined in June 2008. An independent Committee of Experts headed by Prof. Dr. med. Karl Max Einhäupl of Berlin’s Charité subsequently compiled a recommendation for a location to be submitted to the State Government.

Nine cities applied for the Healthcare Campus North Rhine-Westphalia, which is to concentrate existing and yet to be founded institutions of health management in a centre, integrate them in a network and support their development. Special support will be given in particular to innovation in health research.

On the 12th May 2009, it was finally decided that the Healthcare Campus North Rhine-Westphalia would be coming to Bochum. To Chief Minister Dr. Jürgen Rüttgers, this was an “important signal for a transformation of the Ruhr Region”. For: “North Rhine-Westphalia is already a leading health region in Germany today. We want to become a leading health region in Europe. And we want to rank among the best internationally.”

Commenting on the choice of location, Commission Chairman Prof. Einhäupl explained: “What was decisive in recommending Bochum was its scientific, medical and health management expertise.” The geographical location, with an integration potential to link up with the city centre and the University, was given a positive appraisal. And: “Owing to a strong presence of extra-university research in this location, it is expected to bear a considerable potential for networks in the Ruhr metropolis,” Prof. Einhäupl said.

“Opting for one location does not mean turning down the other locations,” Karl-Josef Laumann, the State’s Minister of Labour, Health and Social Affairs, stressed. “As a centre of gravity in North Rhine-Westphalia, the Healthcare Campus is to establish national and international network structures. The Campus is going to give a boost to the entire system of healthcare in North Rhine-Westphalia.”

BOCHUM | Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB)

Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) | Universitätsstraße

German forum thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1590631

Project facts
  • Cost: more than 1 billion €
  • Architect: Molestina Architekten GmbH, Köln & FSWLA, Düsseldorf
  • Use: education, research
  • Start of construction: 2007
  • Completion: 2020

The architect Helmut Hentrich designed the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) as a harbour in the sea of knowledge. The buildings symbolise vessels which have moored at this port. In the centre is the Audimax, the roof of which is reminiscent of a shell.

The founding idea of the RUB is also visible in the campus architecture. From the beginning, interdisciplinarity was to take the place at the RUB. Departments were created which cooperate across disciplinary boundaries and work together as a team. On this basis, a community was to develop which avoided hierarchy.

No wonder that the campus – also today – does not reveal from the outside, which building the philosophers work in, where the medics are, the mechanical engineers, chemists, or historians. Equality, maximum proximity, human and academic exchange were the concepts built-in in the architectural style. It became known as international style which is also part of the inestimable mission of the RUB.

The RUB was the first university in the Ruhr area, and the founding fathers wanted it to compensate for the declining industrial sectors in the 60s with a first-class education offensive. In its basic orientation and its size, the RUB was to set itself apart from the established universities. Built on a green field site, it was easiest to reach via a six-lane motorway and by rail.

The main catchment area of the RUB has always been the whole Ruhr Metropolis. With the programme UniverCity, the connection between the city centre of Bochum and the RUB is to be upgraded.

In the view of the founding fathers, the standardised design and the construction material concrete seemed the ideal elements to give shape to their ideas. A practical building complex arose which formed an open, homogeneous unit with clean lines and no trimmings. In terms of their functionality, the buildings were intended to merge into the background, making the people more visible and thereby contributing to the development of a community, the universitas.

And today? “Green field university” is how a regional newspaper (Westfälische Allgemeine Zeitung, WAZ) dubbed the RUB, and for architecture lovers and photographers, it remains a magnet. The campus architecture has fulfilled its founding purpose. The RUB lives universitas and is perceived as a unique community.

With the campus redevelopment, the RUB currently has the opportunity to fully modernise all its buildings and adapt them to the needs of the time. The aim is to be able to offer students and academics in Bochum excellent study and research conditions and an attractive “living space Ruhr-Universität”.

Concept

The Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) of the 21st Century is a modern, international campus in a new dimension: The central axes are expanding and drawing even more greenery into the campus from its picturesque surroundings (additional grass and water areas and planted roofs).

In future, we will welcome our members and guests at a central reception area in the north of the campus. This welcoming orientation point will connect the city with the living space of the campus. The broadened university bridge will be turned into a “living bridge” with an avenue of trees, wooden terraces, a kiosk, copy shop, and a café.

The university bridge will merge into the new central axis running from north to south. The cultural and service facilities of the RUB are to be situated along this axis. The striking Audimax will remain the centre of the campus. The cafeteria will be located in the south, overlooking the Ruhr Valley, and where the campus meets green fields, the new day nursery will be set up.

On the east-west axis, research and teaching will continue to go hand in hand in the faculty buildings. The I-row is to be extended to the east around the building ID and the G-row to the west around the building GD.

Between the lecture hall centre and the Audimax is the so-called “cross-campus”, which connects the lateral axes. On this large area, small shops will round off the provisions for our students.

DUISBURG | North Rhine-Westphalia archive

North Rhine-Westphalia archive | 76m | Innenhafen

German forum thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1596483

Project facts
  • Cost: 200 Mio €
  • Architect: Ortner und Ortner Baukunst, Wien
  • Use: archive, office
  • Start of construction: 2010
  • Completion: 2013

Towards the motorway and the inland port the NRW State Archive presents itself as a prominent brick building. An archive tower at the centre is added to the existing warehouse from the 1930s. The archive material, previously distributed in a number of different locations, can now be brought together and can be made visible in built terms as society’s memory. The façade openings and the skylights of the existing warehouse are closed up and the clinker brick façade is cleaned. The new storage tower is distinguished from the old brick structure by the use of a fine relief; the edges and surfaces are softer, less easily grasped by the eye. The five-storey addition that meanders along the inland port houses the foyer and administration, as well as a number of other functions.

GELSENKIRCHEN | Hans-Sachs-Haus

Hans-Sachs-Haus | Ebertstraße

German forum thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1596973

Official website: http://www.gelsenkirchen.de/de/Ratha...us/default.asp


Project facts
  • Cost: 94 Mio €
  • Architect: gmp Architekten
  • Use: Town Hall
  • Start of construction: 2010
  • Completion: 2013

The briefing for the new Hans-Sachs-Haus specified that the existing town hall in the city centre be demolished and a new town hall with public citizens’ forum be built while retaining the brick facade dating from the 1920s, which is listed as a historic monument.

The conversion of this monument, which was designed by the Essen architect Alfred Fischer and which is a reference to the spirit of social change during the Weimar Republic, has now been completed. This modern brick building, the external appearance of which has been retained, is a reminder of a cultural epoch which, originating from its social and democratic visions, has created an artistic and architectural legacy. In deference to the past, the original idea

of the public citizens’ venue with a central meeting hall as a citizens’ forum was re-interpreted inside the building. By demolishing the extension building dating from the 1950s and its reconstruction at Dreikronenstrasse, a “citizens’ square”, called Alfred-Fischer-Platz, was created within the curtilage of the Hans-Sachs-Haus town hall. The hotel tower was thus freed up and re-elevated to an urban landmark.

The Alfred-Fischer square is continued as citizens’ forum on the ground floor of the new Hans-Sachs-Haus. It features a light-filled atrium that is transparent in all directions. The multi-functional citizens’ forum presents a wide front to the sunny square, and in fine weather it is possible to combine the spaces by opening the doors of the western facade. Events and concerts can be staged inside as well as outside. This flowing transition between the interior and exterior spaces underscores the impression of an “open house” for citizens.

Behind the retained historic facade, the citizens’ forum and the Council Chamber, the meeting rooms and Lord Mayor’s suite are paired with a suite of offices and service rooms. The space of

the citizens’ forum, which is covered by the Council Chamber, can be separated using mobile partitions in order to form an enclosed venue for events. All areas requiring easy access for the public are located along the citizens’ forum on the ground floor. Consulting rooms and a cafeteria are invitingly placed along the generous historic “shop window facade”, which has been re-instated in its original design.

The internal atmosphere is largely dominated by the interplay of the spatial structure with the colour, texture and feel of the materials used. Structural elements, such as pillars and ceilings are finished in brilliant white plaster. The meeting rooms and Lord Mayor’s suite are lined with wood panelling. The floor in the citizens’ forum facing the atrium are transparent glass facades, creating an open atmosphere around the office areas. The strong horizontal emphasis of the floors visible from the atrium replicate the design principle of the historic facade.

The western corner of the building, at Munckelstrasse, was rounded off, replicating the design of the corners at Ebertstrasse. The horizontal strings that are a pronounced feature of the historic facade have been continued

around the corner on the wall facing Alfred-Fischer square and, in the area of the foyer, continue in the form of sculptural screening elements that provide shading from the sun. The southern facade of the hotel tower has been reconstructed thus re-establishing the original appearance of the tower.

ESSEN | ThyssenKrupp Quartier

ThyssenKrupp Quartier | 54m | Krupp-Gürtel

German forum thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1599879

Official website: http://www.thyssenkrupp.com/de/


Project facts
  • Cost: 300 Mio €
  • Architect: Chaix & Morel et Associés, Paris & JSWD Architekten und Partner, Köln
  • Use: Office
  • Completion: 1.construction phase 2010
  • Completion: 2.construction phase 2014



The Q1 office building forms the heart of the new ThyssenKrupp Quarter. Up to 54 metres high, it is taller than all the other buildings on the campus yet without dominating them. However, the building stands out because of its expressive shape, not its height. The geometric restrictions of the diverse volumes surrounding the centre create an indistinguishable outer shape. The interior is characterized by exciting room sequences where the glazed atrium forms the centre. It extends across 11 floors and is structured by intermediate levels and floating bridges. The room concludes with two landscape windows aligned with the water axis measuring 28 by 26 metres. The windowpanes are supported by filigree cable constructions, so the window appears to the user to be made from a single pane of glass. All these elements combine to form a corporate architecture, thus making it impossible to mistake the new corporate centre for the headquarters of different corporations.

DORTMUND |

German football museum - The German Football Association (DFB) Museum

WHY: Dortmund is to be home to the new National Football Museum of the German Football Association (DFB). That was the decision – with 137 votes to 102 – taken by delegates at an extraordinary general meeting of the DFB held in Düsseldorf on 24 April 2009.

WHERE: As for location, the City of Dortmund went on the offensive with a site on the Königswall directly opposite the Central Railway Station. A piece of prime real estate that was to meet the requirements of the DFB in every respect, a site predestined as a "unique selling point". What's more, it connects to the regional road network, is convenient for Metro stations within a radius of 650 metres, is accessible for pedestrians and cyclists and, not least, there are large number of parking spaces within easy walking distance.

More information: Located on a lot of 6,000 square meters in central Dortmund, the DFB football museum is expected to open in 2015. It will present German soccer in its uniqueness, emotionality, and impact as an international phenomenon. The project is supported by the German Football Federation and the City of Dortmund. The experience-based exhibition will provide a permanent public arena for football in both its historical and contemporary dimension. The clear and intelligible structure of the exhibition will convey the various themes connected with soccer and its complex social, cultural, and economic effects.

Sounds like a bunch of hipsters but this isn't reflected in their architecture.

Interesting comment, but I see the things a bit different. In my opinion some very nice buildings have been built by people who looked and sounded like a bunch of architects, luckily this wasn't reflected in their architecture.

Not sure what yu mean, but by hipster architecture I mean this crazy playful stuff and not serious modern corporate architecture. This has nothing to do with "nice" or not "nice" but with the style.
