A first glance on the landscape gives two contradictory impressions. The beauty of the site and second the necessity to construct this building – and many that will eventually follow.
Our solution proposes a discreet approach of the site and a distinguished new building. The program for the existing building is, as for the new building, laboratories and rooms for collective use (lecture halls, library, restaurant). The rooms for collective use are along a linear ‘boulevard’, the public element, open to the sloping landscape. The laboratories are around six inner courts, with formal gardens.
