German architectural practice blauraum architekten BDA have recently completed this understated three-storey research centre dedicated to laser technology and its appliance in steel construction industry. Located in the Bergedorf district of Hamburg, the design of the perforated aluminium-clad, 4,970-square-meters building was inspired by the precision of laser technology with the yellow-and-grey colour theme ‘serving as homage to the technology.’

More about the project:

 

‘The Laser Zentrum Nord pioneers the future of the German steel-construction industry. Here, students and faculty of the Technical University of Hamburg-Harburg can explore how laser-technology can be used for cheaper and more accurate construction and welding techniques. Accordingly, the Laser Zentrum Nord itself rises from the ground in long, straight, laser-beam-like lines.

 

‘A total of 4,970 sq-meters of floor space over three stories afford research space for the study of the use of lasers in new construction techniques. Classrooms, offices and student study spaces are also housed within the building, as well as an enormous nitrogen tank, thanks to a special permit.’
