Design of new campus started with the introduction of 3 dimensionally “interwoven” space. Space for faculty and staff (office space) & space for students (studio and library) are interwoven to create variety of mutual activities at the in between plazas. Interweaving is not only happening between the space for faculty and space for students, but also with sunlight, trees and breezes.
Cantilevered structures will leave existing biotope, trees and topography as it is, allowing for minimum excavation taken place.
At the same time, this structure system will also give a pedestrian first priority.
As field of architecture is “in between” all academic fields, new complex will be located at “in between” of the campus: Location of the new building will be the center of the campus along main axis of the campus, enhancing collaborative interactions between different fields of study.
