“One of the twelve most significant and modern constructions in the world” (the Guardian)
Phaeno represents a new type of knowledge area: the imposing building impresses with its avant-garde design and provides a range of potential uses. Designed by the London-based star architect, Zaha Hadid, the building, which breaks with many conventions, was opened in November 2005. The limitations of what was previously technically possible were transcended with the help of the most modern, special construction materials. An international team was able to transform the Pritzker prize-winner’s spatial concept into reality following a construction period of four years.
