Text description provided by the architects.

In the field of energy technology, research takes many different directions. The development of new technology always demands new experimental set-ups, that can constantly be adapted. A building that can accommodate such demands, will have to look different to the usual institutional buildings.

A technical lamina curtain facade summarizes the complex form of the building and depending on the viewpoint, transmits a completely different image of its cubic form.
