A living heart for a modernist Campus
Erasmus University Rotterdam has opened the new public heart of its Woudestein campus. The project can be seen as a benchmark for the way grim and gloomy ’60s and ’70s institutional areas can be sparked to life. A new semi-sunken garage has been integrated with a new public space design and pond. Together with a new student pavilion, they mark the realization of the first phase of a unique and ambitious revitalization master plan. The master plan was designed by the collaborating Dutch firms Juurlink [+] Geluk and jvantspijker architects.

Our designs dissolved the classic typography of tower and podium to create a seamlessly fluid new structure – establishing a vision for future achievements and referencing the university’s rich tradition. Conceptually, the university’s many different programs provided a guiding principle – ‘collateral flexibility’ – governing the tower’s internal logic.

We would like to make “the most beautiful building” for the Museo de al Memoria de Andalucía (Andalusia’s Museum of Memory) in Granada. The MA. A museum that wishes to transmit the entire history of Andalusia. As early as Roman times, Strabo described the inhabitants of Andalusia as “the most cultivated of the Iberians, who have laws in verse.”

Studies by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) show a dramatic increase in obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease across the United States. These have become a national crisis that requires ongoing and immediate attention.
The Translational Research Institute for Metabolism and Diabetes (TRI) facility will focus on the study of diabetes, obesity, and the metabolic origins of cardiovascular disease – bridging the gap between the research lab and the patient’s bedside and allowing for scientific discoveries and treatments to be developed more quickly and on a more personalized level.
