MVRDV - Zhejiang University

Zhejiang University

How to create a university building which satisfies a wide variety of programmatic and functional requirements while still maintaining an open and informal spatial arrangement? The client initially asked for two buildings linked by a podium. MVRDV’s 50,000 m2 design responds by turning this solid podium, containing lecture theatres, entrance and breakout spaces and cafes and lobbies, into a glass roofed hall, a grand atrium integrated with a plaza in front. The space between the two buildings forms this grand lobby.
