Project description

On the plot of a former exhibition centre, the new WU Campus represents a modern university concept which is much more than a place of research. In accordance with the master plan developed by BUSarchitektur, six individual building complexes with infrastructure facilities are grouped around the central »Library & Learning Center«. In a seemingly loose arrangement, the individual buildings create an open landscape with generous free spaces. Created on the basis of the »Green Building« concept, the individual components project their own architectural identity which emerges through their design and materials. The profiles chosen for the unitised façades contribute towards the durability of the selected constructions and materials and towards minimising life cycle costs.

The Library & Learning Center is a composition of two interlaced, polygonal building structures, the duality of which is also reflected in the black and white colours of the façades.
