TechU Ibadan Administrative building by MZ Architects

Home > Winners > #34267


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
TechU Ibadan

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Administrative building

INSPIRATION:
The heart of the Ibadan University project lies within a circular enclosure: the faculties, the administration, the library, the research center, the auditorium and the amphitheatre are free standing volumes shifting within the grid. The core of the Ibadan Technical University campus is the administration building with an architecture formed of suspended ceilings, shading the common zones, and forming nice gathering areas in between the administration volumes.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Being one of the first cities to introduce higher education in Nigeria, Ibadan has launched the idea of a technical university. The Ibadan Technical University stretches over a million sqm of land, adjacent to the main Lagos-Ibadan road. The master plan’s concept aims to create a dynamic and interactive space for students and staff. A circle - the symbol of unity - defines the master plan’s layout where different functions are united in an enclosed, landscaped and shaded pedestrian zone.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The development offers the benefits of an energy efficient city, through its design and building materials. The master plan is strategically oriented taking into consideration natural and environmental conditions, for an optimal benefit from the solar energy and prevailing winds. This had a major impact on the project: the distribution of functions, the circulation and transportation system based on the walkability index. The technical university of Ibadan is a self sustaining project contributing in the country’s planning development. The design will take into consideration the Nigerian future of sustainable architecture.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project is located in Oyo State, Nigeria. It was designed in the summer of 2013.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:

University, Administrative, Technical, Sustainability
