The new office of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) explores the urban, economic, and ecologic development potential. As a result it will form the basis for a sustainable development of the total site/land. Main items of the sustainable concept for the building, which is also a landmark for sustainable construction, are the activation of the facades, the diversity of outdoor use, the cooling through water, and the creation of various gardens.
