Urban and Landscape Concept: The main urbanistic idea is the creation of a recognizable address for the university campus of the Wuppertal through a new square. The two storey volume of the Technikum forms an anacrusis to the campus and allows for first views into science world of the university. The surface of the square is designed as a linear pattern which spreads over the street level and the accessible roof. The roof presents itself as inhabitable space with sport facilities and recreation areas.
