HASCHER JEHLE Architektur - Neues Gymnasium Bochum

Hascher Jehle Architektur of Berlin designed the new campus in Bochum to replace two high schools which have traditionally been very important to the community in a single energy efficient construction.

The new building fits into the landscape with its curved shapes recalling the nearby geological park. The similitude can easily be grasped when observing the pathways, the bare rock formations and the new school campus from above.

The key to the project is light, represented on the façade by the LED profiles that make the building stand out at night and in the interiors by a variety of light fixtures and systems.

Artistic inscriptions on the walls represent article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in English, Latin and German, giving the new building strong symbolic power.
