Symposium "Future Factory Design" at TU Munich with HENN

27.02.2017 - Almost one-third of new buildings in Germany are built for industry and trade. However, industrial buildings seldom feature highly in architectural discussions. The symposium at the Technical University of Munich (TU Munich) is about to change this and raises the question of how the importance of these buildings can be reflected in their architecture. The present topicality of resource conservation, energy saving and sustainability should be taken as an opportunity to consider the “factory of the future” from an architectural perspective.

Under the title “Future Factory Design”, interdisciplinary experts will speak on 9 March 2017 about topics such as the “Coupling of production machines and building envelopes” and the possibilities in existing buildings. Speakers will include Rainer Sladek and Andreas Fuchs (HENN), Lukas Weder (Barkow Leibinger), Andreas Schneider (ETA Fabrik), Frank Kaltenbach (DETAIL) and Johann Wimmer (HAAS Fertigbau). The event will be held as part of Munich Creative Business Week in the University’s Vorhölzer Forum. TU Munich considers the forum to be “the social hub and the piano nobile of the Faculty for Architecture”.

HENN wins 1st prize CBD Changchun

19.12.2016 - HENN wins first prize in the international competition for the design of the Central Business District (CBD) in Changchun, competing successfully against designs by competitors such as Woods Bagot and Pelli Clarke. Changchun is an industrial city in north eastern China and is regarded as the centre of the Chinese automobile industry. The staggered street grids of the surrounding areas were the starting point for the design because they extend into the area and intersect with each other to form diverse building footprints. The three office towers are of different heights and were positioned in such a way that the neighbouring residential district is not overshadowed.
