revampWaterworks and pump house, Bonn
Sanierung Wasserwerk und Pumpenhaus (WCCB), Bonn
The listed waterworks and pump house ensemble was built in 1875. It served as the seat of the German Bundestag from 1986 to 1992.
Here in 1990 the reunification of Germany and in 1991 the move of parliament and government to Berlin were decided. After the move, the city of Bonn took over the rights of use for the building in 1999 and made it available to the newly founded World Conference Center Bonn (WCCB). Currently there are congresses, concerts and other events. In the future, the waterworks will be part of the so-called UN campus and used by United Nations (UN) agencies.
In 2012 the buildings are being reconstructed in complete accordance with regulations on heritage assets.
