New Building for Small Departments
The largest construction project that Freie Universität Berlin has implemented itself, the new building housing numerous small academic departments, was completed on time for the beginning of the summer semester, only two and a half years after the foundation stone was laid.
It is an extension of the university's largest complex up to now for housing the social sciences and humanities subjects. Costing approximately 52 million euros, the new building houses 14 separate disciplines that are subdepartments of the Department of History and Cultural Studies as well as a library made up of the departmental libraries of 24 institutes and subdepartments including mathematics and science disciplines.
The building is located on Fabeck Street at the center of the Dahlem campus. It was designed by the award-winning, Munich-based architect Florian Nagler.
