Libeskind architecture with EControl glass – Glass on Web

Many spectacular architecture tasks can solely be realized with exceptionally modern options – as for Lüneburg's Central Constructing of the Leuphana College from star architect Daniel Libeskind.

The futuristic design, with its many asymmetrical shapes, required a photo voltaic management resolution that will completely improve the general creative impression.

That is why Libeskind selected dimmable glass (triple insulation glass 48/9) from EControl (Plauen) for Lüneburg's new 37-metre-excessive "jagged" landmark.

"Our dimmable glass contributes to the clear aesthetics which can be characterised by the imposing window façades and the excessive gentle-flooded inside areas", emphasised EControl Managing Director Dipl.-Ing. Tobias John and added: "It was no downside for us to understand the various codecs."

The architecturally refined new constructing, also known as being "futuristic" or "spaceship-like", demanded a wise however on the identical time elegant shading resolution. An exterior photo voltaic management system would have spoiled the aesthetics of the architecture.

"Within the planning of the local weather-impartial campus the electrochromic glass from EControl matched our necessities completely", defined architect Daniel Libeskind. Even in its absolutely dimmed state, the trendy glass permits sufficient daylight into the rooms and has a optimistic impact on the inside local weather and the nicely-being of the occupants due to its low whole vitality transmittance.

ECONTROL subsequently gives an ideal resolution to the architectural battle between performance and creative design.

Commendation as "Modern Constructing"

Slotted into the 14,000 cubic metres of concrete and a couple of,750 tonnes of metal are 790 sq. metres of glass from EControl. The extraordinary architecture consists of many utterly completely different codecs for the window strips and skylights – typically avoiding the usage of proper angles.

"Our ECONTROL expertise allows the manufacture of probably the most various shapes and even free kinds", mentioned EControl Gross sales Supervisor Manfred Dittmar. A complete of 426 panes had been manufactured and put in.

The modern architecture additionally demanded inventive options within the manufacturing. EControl-Glas devised these options collectively with its insulation glass companion ISOLAR Glas Natter GmbH (Regensburg) – with high recognition: the businesses obtained the award "Modern Constructing" for the Leuphana glazing at this 12 months's annual convention of the ISOLAR Group.

Triple insulation glass with optimum photo voltaic management

The photo voltaic issue (whole vitality transmittance) of the dimmable triple insulation glass ECONTROL 48/9 on the strongest dimming stage is simply 9 p.c. The electrochromic glass thus prevents overheating of the College inside and combines aesthetics and performance.

The modern expertise behind this: ECONTROL panes have an internally positioned nano-structured coating. This causes their color to vary when voltage is utilized.

This "electrochromic impact" colors the glass blue, shutting out the solar's warmth and offering an optimum inside local weather. On this approach, the rooms within the College stay gentle however regardless of this pleasantly cool in the summertime.

"The dimming will be managed routinely or manually, even by way of a pill", underlined Manfred Dittmar, thereby emphasizing the technical potentialities of the electrochromic glazing.

Planning and development

The ceremonial laying of the primary basis stone for the Central Constructing of the College came about in Might 2011. Libeskind, as Professor for Architectural Design on the Leuphana College, concerned the scholars in his planning and allowed them to assist develop concepts.

The asymmetrical types of the brand new constructing complicated present a distinction to the militaristic architecture of the beforehand present buildings from the 1930s. The opening ceremony came about on 11th March 2017.
