The InformatiKOM at KIT (the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology) is a new building located on the edge of the ring road that encircles Karlsruhe city centre. The structure is earmarked for various different academic establishments and institutes, including KIT’s Department of Informatics. The new building consists of two triple-storey structures with square footprints, one of which is placed on top of the other in an off-centre, horizontally rotated position. The lower structure is also connected to another new three-storey construction with a triangular ground plan. Overall, the new Inforum building is divided into two visually distinct parts: a transparent base section topped by a contrasting, solid upper level.
