Appreciation towards J. MAYER H. und Partner Architecten for providing the following description:


The non-profit FOM University is Germany’s largest private university. With over 24 study centers in Germany and abroad, FOM university enrolls more than 21,000 working students, trainees and apprentices. The new building of the FOM University Düsseldorf provides the necessary space for the ever-increasing numbers of students.

教学楼坐落于“Le Quartier Central”,这是一个最新规划并即将完工的多功能区域,位于Derendorf城区的一座旧货运站。新的教学楼能够容纳约1500名学生,其建筑设计反映了火车轨道、桥梁、斜坡和相互连接的人行道等构造肌理。建筑的二层与一个外伸的平台相接,与不同的城市平面建立关联。外部的楼梯和逃生阳台使室内的交通区域得以保持简洁和紧凑。其中一些曲线形的阳台与室外的楼梯相连,使楼上的逃生路径变得更加高效。

“Le Quartier Central” is a newly planned, nearly completed mixed-use area built on a former freight station in the centrally located Derendorf neighborhood. This setting is the new location for the FOM Düsseldorf university. The building can accommodate around 1,500 students and reflects on the infrastructural context of railway tracks, bridges, ramps and pedestrian connections in the building design. It’s first floor connects to a bridge with a projecting platform, creating a link between the different urban levels. The outer staircases and fire escape balconies allow for the compact circulation areas inside the building. Some curved balconies are connected to outdoor stairs, making the escape route for the upper floors more efficient.

The inside of the building opens up to a sculptural staircase, leading the generous foyer upwards to connect all four auditorium levels. Separate from the academic floors, the administration and the student information center are located on the 4th floor. Around the building of the FOM University is an 8,000 m² park situated above a two-story underground car park with 360 spaces. On site there is potential space for future extensions.
