2018-2019 in collaboration with Prof. Bernd Benninghoff

Interdisciplinary transfer and collaboration in research and teaching is the key to innovative ideas and new ways of thinking.

 The Ludwigstraßenpavillon “LUX” in the center of Mainz was designed as a space for knowledge transfer for the Mainz University of Applied Sciences, which is spread over several locations with its three faculties.  Through a common, central location, the university wants to promote encounters and interdisciplinary transfer between all faculties and with the urban surrounding.  The glass pavilion becomes a transparent place of teaching through the tangible presentation of the teaching content, research and project results of the students. By being an interface to the public, it serves as a central showcase for the university.


While the first floor functions as a variable exhibition space for student work, the upper floor offers space for interdisciplinary cooperation, stronger networking and combining of all competences of the departments by allowing flexible room constellations for events, workshops, seminars and lectures. 



The exhibition system consists of 3 elements; presentation panels in different formats, tables and add-on elements. The presentation panels hang from the ceiling and complement the visual lightness of the open glass architecture, while models, prototypes and publications can be presented on the tables. The add-on elements can be applied to the tables and panels depending on the particular presentation requirement.

As a space of new forms of work and creativity techniques, the upper floor enables variable room configurations with the aid of flexible partitions and furniture. The free floor plan of the open pavilion concept becomes a transfer space for interdisciplinary workshops, conferences, lectures and events and at the same time offers possibilities of retreat through separate, flexibly usable seminar rooms.
