M2.2 | RWTH University Library and Central Campus

The second and design part of the two-semester module is dedicated to the Campus in Aachen City. After the students' individual investigations into the individual buildings of the Campus, an architectural guide was created which may serve as a valuable basis for this design part. The address of the main building at Templergraben has continued to determine the campus area since the foundation of the Hohe Technische Schule zu Aachen in 1870. The area has developed from the university library to the Reiff Museum along Templergraben. Thus the campus shows a well-ordered showcase towards the town of Aachen, which is to be supplemented by the extension of the library in the near future. Completely different tasks result from the consideration of the campus areas behind the main building, areas with their old buildings, which have been neglected since the expansion possibilities of the RWTH in the northern outer area of the city. Together with the parking spaces for the employees this area has a lasting effect on the quality of stay on campus. The design work will give the main building and its structural environment an update and a sense of future in an exemplary manner.

The M2 project started in the winter semester 2019/20 and will be continued in the current summer semester.
