Mommsenstraße, 01069 Dresden

A building with charm and history

The Fritz-Förster-Bau is located in Mommsenstraße in Dresden and was completed in 1926. It was based on the designs of the university teacher and architect Martin Dülfer. As the main building for the chemistry and food chemistry departments of the Technical University of Dresden, the U-shaped structure was given its name in the middle of the 20th century – in memory of the chemist Fritz Förster, who himself taught at the Technical University in Dresden and, as rector of the educational institution, also planned the new building.

In 2014, renovation work began on the facility intended for the Faculty of Chemistry. A pollutant cleanup of the long-standing laboratory building was also unavoidable here in order to remove toxic traces.

This year, the construction work was completed. The cost of the renovation ultimately amounted to 56.5 million euros. Today, there is room for 174 people in the lecture hall. Seminar rooms in the wing buildings and offices for a good 400 employees of the university administration round off the Fritz Förster Building.


The university campus also shines in new splendor

In addition to the building itself, increased attention was paid to the open spaces. Planned by Rehwaldt Landscape Architects, block steps, paving slabs and pavers made of belgrano® natural stone were used. A variety of materials, including granite, basalt and gabbro, now add charm to the historic building and enhance both the campus and cityscape impact of the site.

A learning atmosphere in a class of its own

Around 1,000 square meters of floor slabs and the same amount of paving stones made of gray granite set off, among other things, the staircase and entrance lighting in a special way and create a learning atmosphere in a class of its own. Thus, the Fritz Förster Building provides the renowned Technical University of Dresden with a modernized, representative administrative and teaching building in the heart of the campus.
