1st prize for DESY: competition for research campus near Berlin decided

Heinle, Wischer und Partner won the first prize in the competition for the "Masterplan Research Campus and Construction of a Science Data Management Centre" for the research centre DESY (Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron) in Zeuthen.

The DESY site in Zeuthen is part of one of the world's leading accelerator centres and will be in the future the scientific centre of the observatory "Cherenkov Telescope Array". The task of the architectural competition was to determine the best setting for the further development of the campus as well as to create the optimal building concept for the planned new buildings on the lakeside property in Zeuthen.

From the jury report:  “Our decision in favour of the proposal put forward by Heinle Wischer und Partner and UKL was based particularly on the excellent way in which they brought together both these requirements and used them to each other’s benefit: combining a clear campus layout, which is open to further development, with a superior and appealing building design that effectively combines the two functions.
