Wirkbau Chemnitz

Short facts

A prime example of successful revitalisation: the Wirkbau industrial complex now houses a restaurant, coffee roastery and space for events.

What was?
The foundation stone for what was once the largest factory for textile machinery in Germany was laid in 1883. The clock tower designed by architect Erich Basarke in 1927 with its unique Art Deco design became the company's landmark.

What is?
Over 50 companies, educational institutions, start-ups as well as artists and creatives, an ambitious gastronomy and a sophisticated exhibition programme contribute to the high public perception of the Wirkbau and make it a prime example of successful revitalisation.

What's next?
The roof of Hall G - as a platform for actors from art, culture, science and education - will be designed as a lush roof garden. This extended meeting space is
with its urban ecological advantages an innovative component of active location development.
