PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Firstly, we put the buildings around the Capricorn constellation and try to make good facade to close the main square. It was very important to do because the middle of the square is a place for education or concerts or other events, and have to separate from the main road and from the outside areas. The important thing was also to save the existing trees what is a beautiful 50 year old park.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
the land is 5 hectares the buildings with bridges is 40.000 SQM
The foundation is pile base, inside it is the "energy pile", meaning this is a geothermic heating system and we use the foundation to probe. The main areas on the Masterplan made for open education what is new education technology. The all areas are open for the city with no fence, to integrate the people from the city. Also we planed a bridge system to connect the buildings on each level and the other university across the road.
campus: university: education center: multifunctional building: library
The main thing is to build around the education center with different function buildings what is able to give a liable college life and give possibilities to integrate the city life into the campus.
The pot function was hospital with old 50 years old buildings. The first job was to research how we can refurbish the buildings to be good for the university. The building material was bauxite concrete, what was unusable. We made the decision to delimiting it and make a new modern campus.
