The Project Nursing Faculty of the Universidad Nacional de Colombia was planned for over 20 years. In 1995 the architect Rogelio Salmona developed a preliminary project. In 2003 a competition for a design was made and in 2008 under the policy of the Regularization and Management Plan (PRM) of the university the project was reborn and finally in 2013 the construction started.

Atelier Kempe Thill has recently won the European competition for the new faculty building of business economics of the University of Hasselt in Belgium. The faculty building will have a size of approx. 12.000 m2 and will be built on the new city campus of the University close to the medieval city centre of Hasselt in Limburg, Belgium. The new building will contain a series of flexible lecture halls and offices spaces organized around a big atrium that will function as a social condenser for the 1500 students and employees of the faculty. Next to that the building will contain a 500-seat auditorium, and a pubic restaurant that will function as a hub for the entire city campus. According to the planning the building will be opened in 2019.

The Enclave at the Cathedral is a new residential development located on the property of Manhattan’s Cathedral of St. John the Divine. The Cathedral and its surrounding gardens and buildings form an 11.3-acre campus collectively referred to as “The Close.” The new residences sit on the site that formerly housed stone sheds used by skilled masons to cut the granite used to construct the Cathedral. Given the proximity of the new building to the Cathedral, the siting, massing, and design of the building were critical.

Invitation to innovate
In the design for the new incubator and multi-tenant building on the university campus in Wageningen, start-ups and knowledge-intensive technological businesses in the agro and food sectors will have a place for research and open innovation.
‘Plus Ultra’ means ‘there will always be unchartered territory to be discovered and explored’ (see footnote) and symbolizes the commitment to continuous innovation.

Office building redesigned into vibrant meeting place
A former ABP [pension fund] office building dating from 1977 is now a breeding ground for education, research and entrepreneurship. Diederendirrix architecture & urban development and Van Eijk & Van der Lubbe designed the Brightlands Smart Service Campus in Heerlen. The building got a new entrance and two floors were redesigned into ‘community floor’. It is the perfect place to meet and work together in the building.

Knowledge development is all about collaboration. That is why Dutch industry, government and educational establishments are joining forces in the so-called ‘triple helix’. This formula results in highly successful innovation environments that are vital to the Dutch economy. Brightlands Chemelot Campus in Geleen is one such successful environment. With the opening of Center Court, designed by Ector Hoogstad Architects, another important step has been taken: the Campus now boasts a wide range of high-quality facilities in an inviting, accessible and representative complex.

Situated on an extremely narrow site with eucalyptus trees along its southern & eastern edge, Gottesman-Szmelcman Architecture’s design of the Faculties of Psychology & Economics Building at the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya (IDC) reflects several key considerations: a commitment to “green” architecture; a desire to create clear and dynamic relationships between architecture and its surrounding; and a commitment to effectively and harmoniously incorporate carefully defined functions within each building.

After four years of work, the recent inauguration of the Maison des étudiants de l’École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS) unveiled a signature building which enhances an entire neighborhood in the Griffintown district.
Inspired by an icehouse that once stood on the site, the crystal-like volume is remarkably light, open and airy. The mixed-use program was unified into a singular sculpted volume, its offsets interacting in a refreshing way with the more sober and introverted campus buildings. The massing was carved out on its south and east sides to create space for a future park that extends inside the building’s public program, maximizing sunlight and offering the community an abundantly glazed atrium that showcases student life within.

In response to an international design-build competition, our team proposed a quintessentially Californian approach embracing many ideas still new to Asia, from where most of us hail. These Californian ideas formed into Nest we Grow, which grew from a shared interest in the materials that make up our build environment with a focus on renewable materials. Nest We Grow won the 4th Annual LIXIL International design-build competition in 2014, and unlike structures built in the first years of the competition, it is an open, public structure. Its main intent is to bring people in the community together to store, prepare and enjoy local foods in the setting of Hokkaido, Japan.
