These are the first images of Zaha Hadid's competition-winning scheme for a new energy-research department for a university in Aachen, Germany.

Hadid has had considerable success in Germany and again saw off some of the country's best home-grown talent to land the 13 million euro (£8.7 million) E.ON project for the Rheinisch Westfalische Technische Hochschule University. The 5,000m 2 contoured building will be built between a fourlane road and a railway track and will sit above 2,000m 2 of parking space.

A central corridor will split the complex in two. One side will house a series of laboratories and exhibition areas while the other will become home to five faculties, meeting rooms and a library.
