Institut für Hygiene und medizinische Mikrobiologie der FU Berlin

Hindenburgdamm 27
The Institute for hygenics and medical micro-biology was built in 1966-74 by Fehling and Gogel. They developed an own language combining the organic approach of Hugo Häring and Hans Scharoun and Le Corbusiers formal brutalism as found in the Carpenter Center built few years before. Both were students and followers of Hans Scharoun, whom built the Philharmonie and the state library.
It contains in a lively and functional way a research centre in virology, hygenics, and micro-biology of the FU Free University in two main parts: the educational section with lecture halls and library and the research section with labratories and technical supply.

Zentrale Tierlaboratorien der FU Berlin

The central animal laboratories of the FU Free University by Gerd Hänska was planed 1966-72 and built in 1971-81.
As there is a building of Gerd Hänska next to the Max-Planck-Institut für Bildungsforschung we saw on the other tour, we'll find another one of him here: the so called "Mäusebunker", the central animal laboratories of the FU, built in 1971-1980. More about it here and here.
Together with his wife Magdalena he built the now Walt-Disney-Schule called school in Gropiusstadt in Efeuweg in 1968. Gerd was born in 1927 in Berlin, Magdalena in 1924.

Klinikum Steglitz

The Central hospital of the FU Free University was built in 1959-67 by Curtis, Arthur Q. Davis (from New Orleans) and Franz Mocken as contact architect.
Franz Mocken was together with Werner Düttmann the contact architect of Hugh Stubbins for building in 1956-57 for the Interbau (Hansaviertel) the Kongreßhalle, now called Haus der Kulturen der Welt just before this building. To both he was invited by the Benjamin-Franklin-Foundation, that financed both.

On Wednsday, May 25th, there was an excursion to the Max-Planck-Institut für Bildungsforschung, of Fehling and Gogel as well.
