|Since the mid-1990s, the new campus of the Goethe University has been under construction in close proximity to the famous IG Farben building by Hans Poelzig. The Law and Economics Faculty is the biggest new building on the campus to date. It embodies the outstanding architectonic aspirations of this unique building project. The building is one of the best, most important structures by the architects Thomas Müller and Ivan Reimann, and in many respects it reveals their working methods and architectural outlook in an exemplary way. With the aid of texts and plans, this publication presents the historical and conceptual contexts behind the campus as a whole and the faculty building. Stefan Müller’s photographs not only illustrate the architecture and atmosphere of the building, they are also intended as a photographic essay in themselves.
