Biotechnology Centre (BTZ)

The Tübingen Technology Park is being expanded by the Karl Schlecht Foundation to include a biotechnology centre. This will be the new structural home for various biotechnology companies and research centres for vaccines. The four-storey building serves primarily as an administration and service building.

Transparent Facade with External Sun Protection

Werner Sobek developed the facade engineering for the new building planned by the architectural firm Riehle + Assoziierte. The project was executed from 2021 to 2022.

The transparent facade is based on a grid structure of vertical and horizontal frames with external textile sun protection. In the transition to the existing building, there are two semicircular staircase cores as free forms.
