Regional Deutsche Bundesbank head office in Chemnitz. The project consists in the construction of the new regional Deutsche
Bundesbank head office in Chemnitz, formerly Karl Marx Stadt, in a place
with a dense and traumatic history.

The translucent facade is one element that contributes to the building
of this idea. The walls are sheets of
complex laminates made up of layers of glass with a lamina of stone set
between them. This stone lamina was chosen because of its ability to
respond to outside conditions, with marks appearing and disappearing,
giving the inert material a certain organic air.
These glass and fossil
laminates were tested in the laboratory to ensure that they would
withstand the demanding temperature conditions and meet the necessary
security requirements. The sheets were attached to the structure using
the techniques typical of high-tech curtain walls. The strips laid
between the sheets as a finishing touch, as well as all the exterior
elements, are archaic, in bronze.
