a cultural hub in the suburbs: the Campus Melaten project, which is part of the RWTH Aachen Campus in Germany. What is RWTH Aachen Campus? It is the physical "campus" that helps to make RWTH's research expertise more visible by creating a network of science and business projects conducted by a group of international experts. The long-lived research areas are represented by clusters, which are then divided into centers such as the Campus Melaten, in which interdisciplinary teams of scientists and industry consortia work together on special questions about the future with visionary solutions. sop architects designed a cube, which, thanks to its fully glazed upper façades, has the appearance of a gigantic gateway to the campus.
In 1925, a group of innovative German engineers created what would later become the most advanced technical weaving mill of metal fabrics for filtration and industrial use. As the company grew, the world’s most functional and visually engaging material architects and designers would ever have the opportunity to specify evolved -- metal fabric. To this day, GKD continues to revolutionize how architectural structures are enhanced aesthetically, augmented functionally and optimized economically.
