University of Innsbruck in Austria by ATP architects engineers

Monday, September 25th, 2017

Article source: ATP architects engineers

As a result of its victory in an EU-wide realization competition, ATP was commissioned to plan the refurbishment and remodeling of the Faculties of Architecture and Engineering Science of the University of Innsbruck.

The integrated concept proposed two highly contrasting approaches to the design of the two similarly structured buildings – which date from 1969 – as a means of responding to the different spatial and user requirements of the two disciplines (architecture and engineering). The suspended glass façade of the “Architecture Workshop” is playfully open whereas the precise, smooth high-rise silhouette of the Faculty of Engineering Science speaks another language while also acting as a landmark for the campus.

At the core of the concept is the ambition to bring cohesion to a disparate campus; integrating existing buildings with new central student facilities.

Wednesday, June 28th, 2017

Article source: ingenhoven architects 

The Center of Mathematics at the University of Karlsruhe was built in 1964 and needed to be refurbished both architecturally and energetically. Located close to the historic center and due to its location on the edge of the university campus the building works as “showcase” of the university to the city. The rectangular, five-storey building encloses an elevated mezzanine patio, open to the east and west on ground floor.

UAH campus in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam by Truong An architecture + UAH Department of Architecture

Sunday, March 12th, 2017

Article source: TRUONG AN architecture

University of Architecture, Ho Chi Minh City (UAH) was founded in 1951 in the center of Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) formerly known as Saigon at address 196 Pasteur street, district 03, HCMC. Sixty-five years ago, the university was a school which had a closed relationship with French École des Beaux-Arts. Until now, UAH has been developing rapidly from a small architecture school to become a university with many departments and subjects including architecture, urban planning, interior design, industrial design, structural engineering and infrastructural technology. At the moment, the university has welcomed more 8,000 students of all years and courses. A huge number of students is really a challenge for the capacity of the existing university campus. This problem leaded to a vital need of the new additional construction of UAH in Thu Duc district, HCMC. The campus building was opened officially in 2015.

Tel Aviv University Lorry Lokey Management Building in Israel by Gottesman – Szmelcman Architecture

Friday, March 3rd, 2017

Article source: Gottesman – Szmelcman Architecture 

Located on the 200-acre Tel Aviv University campus, the choice of location for the new Lorry Lokey building  was driven by the need to be near the existing Recanati building but it offers the opportunity to influence and address several issues that may contribute to the enrichment and urban coherence of the campus. Sufficiently high to enjoy both the western vista and Mediterranean sea breeze, Gottesman-Szmelcman Architecture chose to split the building into two interconnecting elements. The proposed scheme offers the architects an opportunity to better insulate functions and accommodate a phased construction if need be. Gottesman-Szmelcman Architecture discovered that the splitting the building will enable both a lower and higher entrance and encourage the linking of the adjoining buildings through the respective levels and gardens.
