The Kindl brewery in Berlin-Neukölln, which has been closed down for many years, has been re-designed and built as a centre for contemporary art. The supporting structure for the façade of the wind screen consists of rectangular multi-chamber hollow profiles. The system used here is Schüco Steel-Jansen VISS. In the area of the staircase a frameless glazing with point-fixings according to Fischer Zykon system with a general approval by the building authorities has been applied.

The AUDI exhibition space for the IAA consisted of a 55 x 70 m 3-storey hall with a completely dismountable steel structure. A mirrored façade of the entrance hall, floating car bodies as well as the foundation for the primary structure had to be assembled quickly and accurately. For the foundations following was required: After the end of the exhibition, all foundations had to be removed again. Therefore, ballasted foundations were used instead of the tensile anchorages in the foundation.
