The Campus at Adickesallee is centrally located in Frankfurt’s Nordend and is part of the „Campusmeile“ that connects Frankfurt’s universities and libraries. The Danish office Henning Larsen Architects has designed the campus making it an architectural highlight in the city.
The building is formed through five towers each slightly offset to create a canyon-like space, the “Zeil of Knowledge”– a special characteristic of the campus. This mall acts as the central meeting place and all major facilities like the auditorium, Learning Centre, restaurant, deli, student & alumni relations as well as the seminar rooms are linked to the mall.
Frankfurt School is an international business school with students from all over the world. Currently, students from almost one hundred countries and from all five continents study at Frankfurt School. The campus aims to reflect this international outlook. A new design, representing the American, European, African, Asian and Australian continents respectively, was created and is showcased at selected walls in each tower of the campus. In the campus garden five mini-landscapes portray the continents. The groups of trees and shrubs reflect the international spirit of Frankfurt School and its students. Pine trees and oaks represent Europe, the Tokyo cherry symbolises Asia and eucalyptus stands for Australia.
