In addition to the Library of the 21st Century in Stuttgart, a neighbourhood with retail and office areas was to be created. Transparent façade areas alternate with opaque areas. In order to create an energy efficient building, the outside air is preheated in the facade chamber within the panel during the transition periods. To reduce artificial lighting, light-directing elements are suspended in the courtyards that redirect the sunlight into the interior of the building.
