Frankfurt School of Finance & Management to be designed by Henning Larsen Architects

Henning Larsen Architects has been chosen to design the new Frankfurt School of Finance & Management following a successful proposal submission. The team has devised a series of volumes for the set plot, offset from one another to create a central public zone and dynamic aesthetic for the institution.

Given the subject taught at the school, the project site is located near to Frankfurt’s central business district to enable optimum connections between academic studies and real-life commercial environments, strengthening teaching possibilities. The new facility will include numerous lecture rooms, conference facilities, a library, canteen and shops.

“The central idea of Henning Larsen Architects’ vision convinced us. The campus conveys playfulness. With its central mall and various open spaces and terraces, it invites students, executives, faculty and staff as well as graduates and guests to stay”, explains Professor Dr. Udo Steffens, President of Frankfurt School of Finance & Management.
