Formally and conceptually, we decided that our intervention here should address surface rather than volume; it should be horizontal rather than vertical. As opposed to the mountain of the Völkerschlachtdenkmal (Battle of the Nations monument), we were the sea that steadily wears down the hard rock and turns it into sand.

The project is situated on the site of the former Pauliner Church, the only church to remain undamaged during the war, yet later demolished in 1968 during the former GDR regime. This fourth building section of the University redevelopment comprises a gross volume of 133.000 cubic meters and consists of three main elements: the Aula, the Main Building, and the Audimax.
