The unique building envelope of “ESO Supernova”, a new planetarium and visitor centre in Garching near Munich, is being completely design-engineered, fabricated and installed by FRENER & REIFER.

Scope of work

  • 3,200 m2 ventilated system facades clad in 4 mm aluminium panels
  • 550 m2 steel transom/mullion facades with a height of 14 m
  • 360 m2 aluminium transom/mullion facades
  • 233 m2 star pattern dome with a diameter of 17 m
  • Glass doors with aluminium frames at Basement, Ground and third floors
  • Fully automatic revolving door with a diameter of 3000 mm

Innovations / Challenges

  • Curved facade form with a doubly-curved, free-form aluminium panel façade
  • Unique facade glass geometry consisting of 263 differing triangular sheets at the roof and 213 differing facade sheets
  • The 25 ton star pattern dome was assembled from pre-fabricated modules at floor level before being hoisted to the roof using a large-capacity mobile crane
  • 3D and parametrically designed overall solution
