Since 2009, the Visualization research Center of the University of Stuttgart has been located in the former institute building of the HYSOLAR research project. On these pages you can read more about the background of the building, its history and the special features of the architecture.

From Solar Science to Data Visualization

Originally, the building was built as an institute for scientists, working on the production and use of hydrogen from solar energy. More than 20 years later, visualization researchers make invisible processes of different disciplines visible and thus understanable. >>> Background and origin

Masterpiece of Modern Architecture

The building is one of the masterpieces of modern architecture due to its special aesthetics. The formal language resembles the experimental set-up of a scientific experiment and symbolizes the research that takes place inside. >>> About the architecture
