Sauerbruch Hutton's Office opened


Sauerbruch Hutton's Office for the Ministry of the Environment in Dessau, Germany, opened last week.

The location, in the east German city's former 'gas quarter' - named after an old gas extraction plant close to the central station - was selected to demonstrate the possibilities (and problems) of a brownfield site. The building is entered via a crescentshaped space, which acts as a link between public areas such as a library, information centre and convention hall, and the offices themselves. The landscaping was completed by local firm St Rauma, and is due to be finished this week.
