A new urban quarter has been built on Munich’s former trade fair grounds at the interface between the heterogeneous structures in the west of the city and the vast expanse of “Theresienwiese”.The amorphous glass office building at the heart of the new quarter stands out for complex attention to detail in the architecture of the steel and glass façade. Silver steel ribbons running along the story trace the curved footprint. The residential building in the south of the quarter is plastered red and deliberately sets a color accent; it has room for 50 apartments.
