The Federal Environment Agency in Dessau
An example of ecological and accessible building
With its characteristic shape and the colour scheme of its facade, the UBA’s new main building blends in well with its surroundings. A four-storey ‘snake’ of offices and functional rooms wraps around a public forum and the atrium, which is reserved for Agency staff. Both spaces are covered by a glass shed roof, into which textile solar protection and – over the atrium – a photovoltaic system has been integrated.
