The state archives in Landshut, which houses all the archive materials for Lower Bavarian, moved from the south side to the north of the city due to lack of space and outdated technical infrastructure. The architect designed an L-shaped building with a façade that has a unique texture thanks to its irregular arrangement of bricks in various lengths, widths and colours. As a result, the whole building appears different depending on how far away the observer stands – close-up, the façade appears jumbled in a chaotic way; from a distance it appears to have a rhythmic structure. Furthermore, the brick arrangement also symbolizes the storage of the large amount of archive material, like sheets of paper and folders, inside the building. In addition to storage space, the building contains administrative rooms and an exhibition area, because the aim of the project was to combine archive conservation with a museum open to the public.
