The Jury of the international contest, 175 teams of architects participated in it, gave the first prize to this project, ex-aequo with other three projects by German architects. In the end, this project never got to be constructed.
In this city, with a beautiful Medieval historic centre, the first law schoolin Germany was founded. For this reason, after german re-unification, this was one of the most important buildings to be built.
In the historical ensemble of this city, full of traditions and with a great historical heritage, it was proposed to create an open building, that would disappear into the park. The closeness of the old citadel created a problem of understanding that was resolved through the size, deliberately avoiding trivial and false caricatures.
The public and private areas are rigorously separated: library, cafeteria, waiting areas and audience halls surrounding a great open glass foyer looking over the green lawn. A lawn that, sometimes, continues under the buildings or can go around the perimeter of the builiding making it merge with the ground. Cubic golden stone forms among the trees will give an appearance of abstract sculptures; the roof of the buildings, also in golden stone and copper, would give the image of a fith façade from the most elevated points of the near citadel.
