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.

In an objective of sobriety and obviousness, this building of 20 meters large associates three antinomics functions, (teaching, sporting room, car park) which overlap by strata and maintain their autonomy to gather into a coherent whole.
A work on permeability and successives spaces dig the matter, filte the light and open this “monolith” on the garden and the city.

HAMBURG, GERMANY – In the Bergedorf district, the Laser Zentrum Nord (North Laser Center) pioneers the future of the German steel-construction industry. Here, students and faculty of the Technical University of Hamburg-Harburg can explore how laser-technology can be used for cheaper and more accurate construction and welding techniques. Accordingly, the Laser Zentrum Nord itself rises from the ground in long, straight, laser-beam-like lines.

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.

The new buildingâ€”designed by Rafael ViÃ±oly Architects and commissioned by alumna and namesake Darla Moore through a $70 million donationâ€”will provide an environment well suited to answer the challenges of a 21st century business school.

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.

Marshall Moya Design in association with Cannon Design worked together to create the new UDC Student Center, with an expected completion in the Fall of 2013. This project incorporates a new ground-floor restaurant, meeting spaces, fitness center, and ballroom, all addressing specific needs of the student community. This blend of public and intimate spaces helps to create a haven for these college students, and cater to community needs. The design provides collaborative spaces that will foster and cultivate student relationships and develop school identity. The building will achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum status, which recognizes designs in buildings that incorporate sustainable green initiatives.
