A highly sustainable, compact and flexible building built on the campus of the Delft University of Technology that aims to strengthen the ties between academic and professional education in Technology. This is an open, transparent and iconic building, which effortlessly fits into its surroundings and provides comfort for both students and employees.

The functional concept is a system of public squares and passage ways, which serve as a platform for the interaction between students and exchange of ideas. The colour scheme creates different clusters in the building that help with orientation and identifying departments.
