The overall plan collaborates typologies from the traditional block building with modern compact construction. The lay-out of the Campus is an open structure with public spaces and urban rooms that call for interaction between students across age and choice of education as well as inviting citizens to participate in the Campus life.
The design is based on ‘360 degrees sustainability’, with particular focus on digital studies of light and shadow conditions, sustainable urban drainage systems, and construction-integrated solar shielding. At the same time, it has been important to create a simple and buildable design that is economically efficient in the construction phase as well as during maintenance.
All workshops, laboratories, canteens, cafes, the bookshop and receptions are located in a highly transparent ground floor that exposes the student activities towards the surroundings and contributes to a lively city-environment.
In the project special attention was paid to the integration of outdoor space for creative workshops, such as Maker Space, the arena for sports and theater as well as large urban stairs for teaching and hanging out.
