The foundation stone for the new SupraFAB research building at the Freie Universität Berlin was laid on 5 September 2018 in the presence of Berlin senator for urban development and housing, Katrin Lompscher, state secretary for science and research, Steffen Krach, and Prof. Dr Günter M. Ziegler, president of the Freie Universität Berlin.
The project, which Nickl & Partner Architekten won in an EU-wide competition in 2016, has been under construction since May and should be completed on schedule in 2020.
With the SupraFAB – short for Supramolecular Functional Architectures at Biointerfaces – Freie Universität Berlin positions itself at the cutting edge of research in the fields of cell research and supramolecular chemistry as well as bio and nanophysics.
In his address at the ceremony, Prof. Hans Nickl emphasised the balance between maximum functionality and development of a pleasant, creative work atmosphere that characterises the SupraFAB.
