Tour 1 - Munich East – A New Urban Region Arises

Until 1992 airplanes dominated the region, but then one of Europe’s biggest urban developments began: the trade fair city Riem now offers a home for 18,000 people and work for 12,000 people on a total acreage of 560 hectare. Plenty of renowned businesses have set up their base and helped shape the new urban region alongside the Messe München. We will start our tour at the former now landmarked airport tower, the new headquarters for Brainlab. Further we will visit the SZ publishing building, one of the region’s most distinctive buildings. The four skyscrapers building the eastern gateway to Munich, called the Bavaria Towers, will conclude our tour of Munich East.

Tour 2 - Digital Processes Within Architecture – Research Center Garching An Example of Innovation

The European Southern Observatory (ESO) at the Research Center Garching has created quite a stir with their two new expansions. First, with the extension of their headquarters and secondly with the ESO Supernova, a planetarium and visitor center which was inaugurated in April 2018. The imposing curved structure simulates a binary star system for which the digital planning process would have been indispensable. Not far from there, the project “Galileo – Neue Mitte” will be the new campus center, with benefits such as the congress center, office spaces for research related companies, a hotel, and a wide variety of shops and restaurants. Join us on this tour to visit one of the most prestigious research and educational establishments in Europe, encompassing 10,000 scholars and 9,000 students.

Tour 3 - All About the Music – Important Sites for Culture And Music

The new concert hall will be situated in the Werksviertel near the München Ostbahnhof train station. In October of last year, the winning design by the Bregenzer architectural office Cukrowicz Nachbaur was revealed. An unusually shaped structure and plenty of glass will define the new look. In addition to the concert hall, the Werksviertel will provide housing for 2,650 people and work for 12,000 people. By incorporating old industrial buildings with new constructions, the district will offer a unique composition of apartments, loft-offices, art and concert spaces, nightlife, workshops, bars and restaurants, as well as hotels and leisure facilities. Just two kilometers in the direction of the city center you can find the Gasteig, the cultural center of Munich. It houses Munich’s philharmonic orchestra and a variety of prestigious cultural and educational institutions. In the competition for the general restauration and modernization of the cultural center, a draft was selected in autumn 2018. During the renovation, the Gasteig will be temporarily moved to Sendling in 2021. Join us on the tour to learn about the present and the future of music in Munich.

Tour 4 - Future Life and Work– District Development Munich

How does urban life and work develop in the future districts? Just one question we have to ask ourselves in fast growing cities like Munich. The equal distribution of affordable living spaces and a social mix within the districts is the basic requirement. Newly developed mobility concepts will aid the optimal and ecofriendly connections to and within the city. However, to make a district livable and desirable, the residents and businesses have to be incorporated. On this tour you will get a peek into three different districts and their respective approaches by showing you a residential and commercial building, a hotel and an award-winning residential project.


Stop 1:            Schwabinger Tor: LEO Residential and Commercial Building, 03 Architekten GmbH, München

Tour 5 - The Way Towards a World Cultural Heritage – Olympiapark and its Surroundings

In April 2018 it was decided by the committee for city planning and building regulations that the Olympiapark should be made a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site.

You will get an introduction into the since 1988 heritage-protected site including its most significant sports venues.

Tour 6 - Innovative and Flexible – New Office Concepts for Borderless Working

New office concepts, open structures and maximum flexibility will allow an almost limitless possibility for companies and their employees. But how can such a flexible design within a company be organized? Can an architectural guideline provide an optimal environment for full and part-time employees? How can co-working-spaces offer sources for synergies? How can a deliberately designed environment influence the productivity of the individual? We will try to answer all those questions on the tour and provide outstanding examples for extraordinary office concepts within architecture.
