The largest of the up to three office buildings that will be part of the Ostkreuz Campus business location is called PANDION POLLUX. The six-storey modern office building with a total of 50 office units is of course not called that by chance. Rather, there is an interesting symbol behind it. The name refers to Pollux, the brightest star of the constellation Gemini. Also known as the red giant because of its luminosity and size, the star has about eight times the radius and 32 times the luminosity of the sun. Brightness is also one of the characteristic architectural elements of the PANDION POLLUX office ensemble. For example, floor-to-ceiling windows with elements that can be opened, as well as loggias and roof terraces, will provide light, air and freedom throughout the building’s 27,000 m² rental space.
The constellation of Gemini begins today on 21 May and appears as two people standing side by side in the night sky. The heads of the two people symbolise the famous Roman Dioscuri: Castor and Pollux. Perhaps the constellation can be discovered on a clear May or June night?
