The new building for the branches of study of languages and cultural sciences is being constructed on the Campus Westend of Goethe-Universität in Frankfurt am Main. It has a floor space of about 37,000 m² and consists of 2 basement floors, as well as 6 upper floors. Its maximum length amounts to approximately 120 m, its largest width to about 80 m.
The building measure consists of the new construction of the building part East, made up of the ground floor, two basement floors and 4 upper storeys including a large entry hall, the building parts Centre and West, which are reconstructed to a large extent, the connecting building Belvedere (connecting corridor with a length of 120 m in composite steel construction with the highest requirements of fair-faced concrete) and the protective wall, which consists of a cantilver retaining wall of 160 m of length and 7 m of height including a retention basin.
New construction of the Juridicum with librarian research and study centre, seminar areas and service areas of Christan-Albrechts-University in Kiel for the faculty of jurisprudence.

The upper edge parapet is situated on the roof ceiling over the 4th storey at a height of 18.95 m.
New construction of the John Cranko Ballettschule (ballet school) in the centre of Stuttgart. Terraced building expanding over 120 m. Convoluted construction on a total of 11 levels. Extremely high architectural requirements concerning the quality of the fairfaced concrete (fairfaced concrete 4) of interior walls/ceilings, as well as a continuous exterior façade made of fairfaced concrete.
In connection with the extension of Mannheim Business School at Mannheim Castle an underground study centre with two semi-circular lecture halls is built. The draft created by Architekturbüro schneider+schumacher shows a bowl-shaped section and opens to the garden of the Castle by means of a large glass facade. Two dome-shaped roofs give an open feeling of space to the lecture centres. At their highest point they surmount the upper edge of the 45 cm thick ceiling of reinforced concrete by 1.25 m. The infrastructure of the newly created building is installed by connecting it to the existing buildings. In order to do this, approx. 7 m had to be excavated in very narrow spatial conditions. Afterwards the exterior foundations of the Castle were broken through and the new building was thus connected to the existing structures.
