The new building on the Dahlem campus of the Free University of Berlin is a two- to four-storey reinforced concrete structure with several inner courtyards. The floor space, covering almost 12,650 m², is home to the degree programmes of the “smaller” faculties including the Institute for Ancient Oriental Studies, Korean Studies and Turkish Studies, as well as a campus library of approx. one million volumes and 950 reading and workstations. The Munich architectural office Florian Nagler was responsible for adapting the design and structure of the outer shell to the existing buildings.
