The sub­ject of this com­pet­i­tion is the design of a new build­ing for the Friedrich-Fröbel-School in the dis­trict Nieder­rad. The aim of the com­pet­i­tion is to develop the ele­ment­ary school into a five-form ele­ment­ary school in the future due to increased demand, with the addi­tion and integ­ra­tion of the exist­ing sports hall and the asso­ci­ated plan­ning of the tech­nical equip­ment and out­door facil­it­ies.

In par­tic­u­lar, innov­at­ive con­cepts and ideas are to be developed that enable the topics of 'cluster schools' and 'open learn­ing land­scapes' to be addressed. The City of Frank­furt also expec­ted for­ward-look­ing design con­cepts that achieve the highest pos­sible over­all effi­ciency, com­fort, usab­il­ity and archi­tec­tural qual­ity with the lowest pos­sible use of energy and resources.

From a total of 146 applic­a­tions, 15 par­ti­cipants were selec­ted in a pre­lim­in­ary com­pet­i­tion. 5 par­ti­cipants were nom­in­ated in advance by the award­ing author­ity.
