Landmark of the IBA is the new building built by Sprinkenhof AG for the Office of Urban Development and Environment (BSU).An optical eye-catcher , the building designed by Sauerbruch Hutton impresses, above all, with its excellent energy balance. For this purpose, more than 7,000 m² of glass from Flachglaswerk Radeburg GmbH - a company in the Saint Gobain GLASSOLUTIONS group - was used.
The largest and most colourful building project of the IBA 2013 already catches the eye from afar: the main tower of the curved new building rises to a height of 54 metres. Like waves, two five-storied wings extend from it which, in turn, are subdivided into seven "houses". In the black façade, colourfully patterned bands consisting of a total of 26,000 glazed ceramic panels in 20 different colours are integrated: they lend the building the typical patchwork look created by the architects Sauerbruch Hutton.
