The ProLog building is the first project originating from a European competition process. The building complex was planned by renowned architecture office Meyer & van Schooten in Amsterdam. An extensive research hall, the so-called “Enterprise-Integration-Center (EICe)”, elegantly links office space and a large atrium. The atrium, at the core of the design, reaches from the workshop to the innovation laboratory floor to the offices on the top floors.

The concept of the building impresses more than just its tenants. In 2015, the ProLog building at the RWTH Aachen Campus was nominated for the immobilienmanager Award in the “New Building” category. While it did not make first place in this national competition – “the Oscars of the Property World” – the nomination itself was a special recognition both for Landmarken AG and RWTH Aachen Campus GmbH.
The project was awarded gold certification by the DGNB, the German Sustainable Building Council.
More background information about this project – from the initial idea to the competition procedure and completion – can be found in our work report. The impressive video from FIR, the Institute for Industrial Management, in the media bar above demonstrates its current use.
The property was sold to PATRIZIA Immobilien AG.
