Opening of the new Money Museum in Frankfurt

On December 16, 2016, the German Bundesbank celebrated the opening of the new Money Museum in Frankfurt. Alongside the official speech by President of the Bundesbank Dr. Jens Weidemann, Jürgen Engel also addressed guests as the architect behind the extension. The extension supplements the existing building, which was also created by KSP Jürgen Engel Architekten back in 1999. The complex, which consists of offices, a library, an archive and the Money Museum is being expanded by around 500 m² and supplemented with a cafeteria, an additional training room for the museum’s educational activities and a room for special exhibitions. In order to create room for a bigger exhibition space, the former back wall of the museum was demolished and the walls above it retained with supports so that the extension could protrude out from the building like a drawer. In visual terms, a glass seam links the existing building to the extension. The new Money Museum covers an area totaling 1,500 m² and outlines the history of money in multimedia form, thus making it interesting and accessible for visitors.

Construction begins for Siemens Campus Erlangen

With the laying of the first stone on Friday December 9, 2016, Siemens celebrated the beginning of construction work for the first module of the Siemens Campus Erlangen. On behalf of Siemens AG, represented by Siemens Real Estate, an entirely new district is set to develop in Erlangen based on plans by KSP Jürgen Engel Architekten from Frankfurt, which by 2030 will incorporate new office buildings and a hotel, as well as gastronomy and service businesses. By 2020 eight office buildings, three multi-story car parks and one canteen for around 7,000 employees will be ready for occupation in the first module. The campus will develop in seven construction phases (modules 1 to 7) over a 54-hectare site, making it the biggest location worldwide. Alongside the master plan, KSP Jürgen Engel Architekten was also commissioned with the general construction planning for modules 1 and 2. In the first two modules office and research jobs will be created over an area of around 200,000 m2. The plans came out on top in an architecture competition in 2015.

Jürgen Engel with Angela Merkel on China trip

From June 12 to 14 Jürgen Engel, together with six ministers and several secretaries of state, was in Beijing as part of the business delegation accompanying Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel. The focus was on trade relations and China’s recognition as a market economy. The high-ranking members of the delegation signaled the relevance of the trip. Angela Merkel was accompanied by Federal Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier (SPD) and Federal Minister of Finance Wolfgang Schäuble (CDU) as well as a small group of high-ranking representatives of German business, including Rüdiger Grube (CEO Deutsche Bahn AG), Dr. Heinrich Hiesinger (CEO ThyssenKrupp AG), Joe Kaeser (CEO Siemens AG), and Jürgen Engel (Managing Partner, KSP Jürgen Engel Architekten). Personal contacts, long-standing cooperation agreements and familiarity with cultural and business particularities are especially important when it comes to being successful in China. KSP Jürgen Engel Architekten has been operating in the country since the early 1990s and has an office of its own in Beijing. The company’s breakthrough in China came with the National Library of China in Beijing, which is now regarded as one of the 100 most important structures in the country.
