The University Of Versailles Science Library in France by Badia Berger Architectes

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013

Article source: Badia Berger Architectes

SITE | the articulation of the building with its environment
The site, situated on the campus of the University of Versailles, falls within the historical district of the Château de Versailles which imposes, amongst many constraints, minimal building heights. The campus itself is a historical domain having been the property of the car manufacturing family Panhard. In the nineteen sixties, buildings on campus were built around the « historical centre », constituted by the Panhard pavilion and its gardens. Devoid of any particular character, these structures do not impart a strong identity to the campus.

VIA University College in Aarhus, Denmark by Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects

Wednesday, February 6th, 2013

Article source: Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects 

The aim of the new campus is to help consolidate the activities at one of Denmark’s largest educational institutions. Covering approximately 27,000 square metres, the complex will bring together the many specialist disciplines under one roof and create links and cohesion across disciplines. The vision is to create a flexible, dynamic, cross-disciplinary study environment where students, lecturers and visitors can meet, knowledge can be shared, and ideas can come into being. A central plaza located in the midst of the four wings of the building will act as a meeting place for approximately 2,000 students who will be spending their days on campus in the future. Above the plaza, the building will open up towards the sky and draw the daylight in, while balconies and terraces will define the atrium beneath the expansive light from above.

Student Housing University of Southern Denmark by C.F. Møller Architects

Sunday, January 27th, 2013

Article source: C.F. Møller Architects

The design of the new student housing for the University of Southern Denmark in Odense is based on a strong community spirit. The 250 student residences are located in three interconnected 14-storey buildings. This means that the residence has no front or back, but appears attractive from a 360-degree perspective. The building’s distinctive shape will make it easily recognizable on the campus, and clearly advertises its distinct residential content.
