We recently drove to the old German city of Ulm to visit our good friends Jacobo and Michèle. They gave us a nice lift to the remarkable buildings of the University of Ulm, one of Otto Steidle´s best known works. We knew about the project from books and magazines, but it was the first time that we had the chance to visit the building… It is always worth visiting architecture on site! The long modular timber-frame wooden structure, the colourful façade panels and large windows and, above all, the joy, spontaneity and diversity of the proposal have reminded us of the time when we worked with Ralph and Doris Thut in Munich in the 90´.
