Campagneplein ‘Sky’, Twente University in Enschede, Netherlands by arons en gelauff architecten

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

Article source: arons en gelauff architecten

These two student dormitories – a courtyard building in the forest and a high-rise building with a climbing wall – stand on the campus of Enschede University in the East of the Netherlands. Thanks to a functional mix of housing, study and leisure and the arrangement of the buildings as solitaires in the landscape, the university compound from the 1950’s is one of the few real campuses in the Netherlands.

UNIVERSITY CENTER, THE NEW SCHOOL in New York by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

Article source: Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP

For nearly a century, The New School has been at the forefront of progressive education, with design and social research driving approaches to studying the issues of our time, from democracy and urbanization, to technology, sustainability, and globalization. Over the past 15 years, The New School has built on this legacy to grow into a major degree-granting university, with nearly 10,000 undergraduate and graduate students. But, in recent years, as the school outgrew its longtime home in New York’s Greenwich Village and found its real estate holdings spread across the city, from the Financial District to the Upper West Side, this pedagogical model proved challenging to maintain without the physical plant to support it. The University Center both supports and furthers this model through its innovative design and responds to the school’s increasing demand for state-of-the-art, interdisciplinary spaces.

SANTO TOMAS PROFESSIONAL INSTITUTE – FIRST STAGE in San Joaquín, Chile by enrique browne y arquitectos asociados

Thursday, March 20th, 2014

Article source: enrique browne y arquitectos asociados

The plot is located in a corner of the busy Vicuña Mackenna Avenue, on which an elevated metro runs. Located in front of the site is the largest Campus of one of the most important universities in the country. Its main access is on the diagonal to the site of the Santo Tomás Professional Institute. Another important issue is the oppressive presence of a metro station of 150 meters in length, located in front of the site with the height of 4 floors. The only visual relief occurs at the corner of the site, exactly on the mentioned diagonal. It was thus decided to access the Institute on that axis.

Historic Buenos Aires Building Revitalized As Di Tella University Campus Alcorta by WSDG

Wednesday, August 7th, 2013

Article source: WSDG

A once grand, but long-abandoned, state building, has been reclaimed as the new Di Tella University Campus Alcorta in Buenos Aires.  A work in progress since 2004, the ambitious re-development was designed and coordinated by RDR Arquitectos, an architectural  firm with offices in Argentina and Switzerland. The multi-national, Walters-Storyk Design Group provided integral acoustic design and consultation, and played a key role in the project’s audio/visual and interactive technology system integration.

The Check Point building in Tel Aviv, Israel by Kimmel Eshkolot Architects

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013

Article source: Kimmel Eshkolot Architects

The planned Check-Point Building for the Faculty of Computer Science and for science-oriented youth is located in the center of the campus, between the buildings of the Physics and Mathematics Faculties  and the Dan David building. The building is designed to enable separation between the two groups of users, and yet to encourage informal meetings between them, by allowing the joint use of some facilities, such as the auditorium and large classrooms.

The State University of New York at New Paltz by ikon.5 architects

Friday, June 28th, 2013

Article source: ikon.5 architects


The State University of New York at New Paltz needed to expand its 1970 Student Union building by providing informal gathering spaces for students. The existing Student Union building was designed as an isolated cellular office building and did not have space for student collaboration or congregation. In addition, the University wished to change the overall appearance and presentation of the existing building which conveyed an uninspired institutionally functional appearance at the gateway to the university.

Universitary College, Extremadura University, Badajoz 1980 in Spain by Arquitectos Ayala

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

Article source: Arquitectos Ayala

I used to live in a college for so many years. There the students were distributed in sunny rooms or darkness rooms. Due to I never got the needed status and college prestige, I could never be moved to the sunny rooms. It seemed that students from these sunny rooms were happier and with better color as we used to have painful look.
