Freie Universität Berlin




The building holds classrooms, laboratories for theoretical and experimental physics, library, auditorium and canteen. The design is based on a grid system in 2 and 3 storeys with a simple and rational system of corridors. Placed on both sides of an old plane tree avenue the physics buildings are connected by two pedestrian bridges across the avenue.

The buildings have structural concrete frames and are clad in light grey fire resistant aluminium panels.
