Entry for the competition of the new building of the pharmaceutical chemistry department of the LMU Munich in Grosshadern. This 20-piece spacial form of metal was inspired by the outline of the pentagonal molecular ring (brain and Alzheimer research).

Visitors entering the building's foyer are greeted by five "molecular disks" floating in the air. These are arranged so that their shadows fall on the northern wall. Sunlight passing through the patterned windows reflects on the disks, creating an impression of large molecules comprised of many pulsing atoms. Over the course of the room's eleven steps and two stories, CHANNEL tapers from 5'30" m to 10 cm. The diagonal alignment of its elements highlights the dynamics of the hall, reflecting its movement.
