Time-lapse video sequence showing the construction of the ESO Headquarters extension

This time lapse shows the construction of the ESO Headquarters extension building over a period of nearly two years. ESO’s new office and conference building in Garching, together with the adjoining technical building (not shown here), have a total area of 13 200 square metres, which more than doubles the total area of ESO Headquarters. The new buildings, which were inaugurated on 4 December 2013, will strengthen ESO’s presence on the Garching research campus, allowing the organisation to further expand its economic and scientific contribution to the region.
