Scope and Content

File documents an unsuccessful entry in an invited competition for a mid-rise office building for approximately 250 employees in Brühl, near Cologne, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. The building was intended to serve as the headquarters for the German lock company DOM Sicherheitstechnik GmbH & Co. KG. Conceptual, schematic and design development sketches and drawings include isometrics and perspectives showing early ideas for the building's massing; schematic floor plans showing horizontal and vertical circulation paths throughout the building; diagrammatic plans indicating how people by car, foot, or bicycle would enter the building; diagrammatic sections showing the relationship between functional areas; and plan obliques of functional areas for square footage calculations. A panel composed of sketches with text and annotations describes Price's concept and the building program. Design development drawings also include floor plans showing circulation patterns, elevations showing the exterior stainless-steel cladding, isometrics showing the relationship between floor levels and functional areas, and perspectives which were possibly used to develop the overall massing of the building. A set of four panels numbered 2 through 5 depict floor plans, elevations, and sections from another project, Steel House (AP144.S2.D60). One presentation board is a collage composed of four coloured photographs of the working design models. Reprographic copies were made from the original design development drawings, and some of them are coloured with markers and annotated. Material in this file was produced in 1980.

File contains conceptual drawings, design development drawings, presentation panels, other panels, presentation models, photographic materials, and textual records.
