An urban, representative and multifunctional town plaza has emerged – an inner city “stage” with a high quality of stay.

Here, in the atrium of the Academy, plants thrive in an unusual environment – with no direct contact to the earth, little natural light, and artificial irrigation ... Most of these plants have a special connection to Jewish life. Some, for example, bear the names of Jewish people, others play a role in the Jewish holidays. And some of the plants’ folkloric names refer to anti-Jewish sentiments.

In the early 80s it had already been established that leachate water from the landfill site contained particularly hazardous dioxins, which is why this site gained a sad fame in that time. In the years to follow, concepts for the remediation of the landfill have been elaborated and implemented ...

After closing down the former US Army helicopter airfield Bonames seemed to stay behind as a relic of the cold war like a contaminant in the near-natural floodplains of the river Nidda. The basic idea behind the design is to modify the original airfield and its materiality so gently that the military character of the area melts together with the surrounding nature to a new unity. Simultaneously, the former airfield was opened to the public for recreational outdoor uses.
