Contest launched for Giessen university library

  • Comment

The German state of Hesse has launched a design contest for a new £18 million central library and archive at the University of Giessen

The ‘modern and forward-looking’ facility will host around 620,000 volumes which are currently spread across seven libraries on the university’s culture and humanities campus.

The new 7,000m² facility will also include reading rooms and storage areas for maps, images, rare texts and the university’s papyrus collection.

The library and archive will be the centerpiece of a competition-winning redevelopment masterplan – designed by Frankfurt-based Ferdinand Heide Architecture – for the prestigious campus.

Officially known as the Justus Liebig University Giessen, the institution of higher education was founded in 1607 and is thought to be one of the oldest in the German-speaking world.

Around 30 teams will be invited to participate in the competition following a pre-qualification round.

The winning team will receive around £55,000 and the competition language is German.

The deadline for requests to participate is 10am local time on 1 June.
