Guardian Glass Project: RWTH Aachen University

©Jens KirchnerDesigned by architects Lepel & Lepel, the Center for Mobile Propulsion (CMP) is the research center for at RWTH Aachen University.

In terms of its architecture, this impressive-looking building has two very different uses: the seminar and administration building on one side and the engine test center on the other. 

Both buildings complement each other functionally, but strongly contrast one another in terms of design, form and construction.

The Z building  — for seminars and administration  — is a curved glass structure with a maximum of interior space that allows flexibility for specific requirements such as open plan offices. The main entrance is located over the foyer to the lecture and seminar rooms. 

The test center is not visible from the outside –the workshops, warehouses and laboratories are situated on the ground floor near to the set up and assembly areas.
