The 5-storey new building combines a variety of different uses of the CAU animal husbandry and the Institute of Physiology under one roof. This new replacement building has become necessary within the framework of the Anger buildings hazard prevention. The building became necessary as a replacement building within the framework of the Anger grounds.
In addition to office, research and living areas, the building also houses seminar and practical rooms, measuring rooms for physiological examinations on test subjects, workshops, storage and technical rooms. The U-shaped building meets the high demands of the location with regard to the integration of different users, the protection of historical monuments, networking within the campus area of the university and the renovation of the building ground.
The building volume creates a new presence on the university campus with its multi-folded gable roof, a clearly structured façade construction of rear-ventilated glass-fibre concrete panels with horizontal window elements, the formation of a protected inner courtyard and the attractive entrance situation for the Institute of Physiology and the CAU Animal Husbandry cut into the structure. The new building with its animated roof form is visually bound together and enlivened in its asymmetry by the arrangement of the recurring horizontal window formats. The areas dedicated to teaching and thus more public are readable through large glazed areas in the façade.
