a town block
The design of the HFF buildings is based on its existing surroundings and influences. In the north, the new buildings close off Gabelsbergerstraße opposite the big free space towards the old Pinakothek. To the West and East reference is also made to the Fluchten determining the streets. The result is a block that is typical of the district. This block should become visible outwardly with the 1.BA of the HFF and the new museum. The "footprints" of the later extensions are kept free inside the block thus giving rise to the final internal structuring of the block with the tow corner yards.
The height of the HFF buildings is determined by the existing roof height of the neighbouring buildings. By introducing a foundation level in the Institute building and consistently filling the block, the desired building dimensions can be achieved.
Fraumework and Monolith
The new university buildings act as a framework for the individual conjoining monolithic buildings of the museum. Opposite the 150m long side wall of the old Pinakothek, the sidewalk of the new university divides through the inner part of the block.
Transparent and Large scale
Both the houses of the HFF are joined to their side walks by transparent and large scale iridescent blocks. The strong rhythms of the facade of both the complexes differ in the inner life and indicate nevertheless a vivid similarity. The brick facade builds a subtle wall for the block and at the same time acts as a partition for the outside and the inside. The ‚flying’ cinemas in the conjoining and entrance building, the conspicious interaction from the inside to the out, film to living, culture to everyday, are appreciated. The two sites of the site in between are joined by a projection and everyday pictures. The cinema in the middle creates an expressive entrance for the university.
The inside of the blocks is brought to life by the extension into the two corners of the courtyard from the footpath. From the Pinakothek, one is led under the vast multi-media areas of the film courtyard where a steel framed roof covered in greenery overlooks the yard. All entrances of individual Institutes are lined up along the eastern wall of the yard. The museum’s glass tower entrance can be reached through the cafe. The museum accomodation units at Königsplatz are also accessible from here. A side entrance is also created, which leads to the University for Music and Theatre.
The University for Television and Film
The two buildings are divided according to the two university programmes. The western part of the site allows for public uses while the eastern part serves for a quiet area. The buildings are joined by the production and post-production departments. The passage through the building portrays the production flow of film and television.
