Design Challenge:
Within the framework of “Frankfurt macht Schule,” measures for all-day care, inclusive schooling, participation in education, and digitization have been initiated, which will now be taken up and elaborated on the Gallus Education Campus. These topics as well as inclusive learning models therefore require new spatial organizational models.


In this respect, the Gallus Education Campus has a special pioneering role. In addition to the integrated comprehensive school with school library and several gymnasiums, the site already houses a district library, children’s centers and childcare services for children and young people. A new addition is the “campus heart” with auditorium and cafeteria as well as administrative and teaching space and the upper secondary school, thus complementing the educational offering up to university entrance qualification.


A total of eight institutions will together form the Gallus Education Campus. They will continue to exist as organizationally independent institutions, but in the future they want to cooperate much more closely than before, develop joint offerings and fill the synergies of the Education Campus with life. Around 2,000 children, young people and adults will ensure lively learning and life on the campus.
