Above the treasures of Bavaria: 4th price in the competition State Archive Kitzingen

The written records of the Free State of Bavaria are stored in nine archives throughout the state. Now the competition for a new building in Kitzingen was decided, which is to take over this task for the administrative district of Lower Franconia.

Heinle, Wischer und Partner received the 4th prize for their design. Above the treasures of Bavaria, the new archive building rises as a wedge-shaped structure with a walk-in roof and is thus itself an experience for visitors.

From the jury's reasoning: "The authors succeeded in generating the link between the special location in Kitzingen, the history of the state, which is to be documented via the State Archives, and a future-oriented use and interpretation that is of interest to the public. The local, topographical and landscape features are sensitively taken as background and unique feature."
