The Free State of Bavaria is arranging the dismantling and new construction of the Faculty of Sports and Health Sciences and the Central College for Munich Technical University. Covering a gross floor area of over 42,000 m2, on two storeys and almost 19,000 m2 of usable floor space, space has been created for 14 sports halls, 15 football pitches, 7 beach volleyball courts, 22 tennis courts, one hockey field and one golf course, 12 lecture halls, 15 laboratories, a cafeteria, a library and, following completion of the next construction phase, room for 300 offices and 5 workshops

With its six inner courtyards, the complex is not only unique in Europe, but it is also said to be Europe’s largest wooden building: it was moreover realised while activities were ongoing.
