David Chipperfield Architects Berlin has won the competition for the development of a mixed-use complex in the heart of Munich. On Friday 4 February the jury, chaired by Professor Ludwig Wappner, selected the office’s design, which was developed in collaboration with the landscape architects Atelier Loidl Landschaftsarchitekten, from a total of 11 entries from international architecture practices.

Signa Real Estate Germany will develop the building complex on Schützenstrasse between Munich's main railway station and the central square Karlsplatz, which will create a lively, urban atmosphere through its functional diversity and generous public green spaces. The design reflects the mediaeval small-scale urban structure of the surrounding area as well as the rational, representative scale of the former imperial capital, combining both principles in a new, metropolitan structure.
