ThyssenKrupp Campus, Essen, Germany

The ThyssenKrupp campus on a 17-hectare site in Essen city centre accommodates 2,000 employees and houses the conglomerate’s new headquarters, administrative offices, the ThyssenKrupp Academy (a training centre) and a conference centre on the company’s historic location, for a project total of 160,000 sq m (a first phase of 112,500 sq m delivered in September 2010). The buildings follow a simple, orthogonal design and are informed by a strong environmental approach that provided so many occasions to propose specific sunshading systems for each building and thereby display ThyssenKrupp’s industrial know-how.
