BUILDING Z

Antwerp, Belgium
The University of Antwerp’s amalgamation of multiple institutions has resulted in four detached campuses and their distribution throughout the city has left the University without a true center or “heart”. If connected, the University stands to assert its presence throughout the entirety of Antwerp. Given its prominent location, Building Z negotiates a void between two of UA’s campuses and a proposed ecological zone. The building itself allows for specificity while also linking departments through shared programming via a learning bridge.
