The concept for the development of the old foundry site, including the expansion of the university within the historic fortress ring of Ingolstadt's old town, is based on the winning competition design (together with Klein Sänger 2009). The overall development of the foundry site is being funded as part of the urban development program.

The university buildings of the first construction phase form an urban ensemble with the old foundry hall, which creates a coherent connection to the city center with the central university square. Towards the glacis, a green, landscaped campus was created, incorporating the existing large trees.

The construction site of the university extension is divided into 5 independent components that can be realized independently.

The Carissma research center (crash hall, autonomous driving) is located almost centrally between the glacis and the extension building. An appropriately wide open space separates the two buildings, which was designed as a quiet lawn with loosely planted trees. To the south and east, a species-rich meadow area with individual tree plantings forms the transition to the glacis. The historic course of the wall runs right through the green space, which is echoed in the design.
