Over Morgen Gesproken // HBOINSTAP - design, Eindhoven University of Technology, Eindhoven, the Netherlands, 2012
This design for a new accommodation for the executive board of the TU/e is coherent with the slogan of the university: “The university of tomorrow”. The building creates a never-ending source of energy by storing durable energy of the elements water and fire. Hydro energy uses water and solar panels use the sun to generate electricity. The stored energy of today serves the demand for energy tomorrow, because ‘green tubes’ spread energy, which was obtained at the accommodation of the executive board, all over the campus to be used by the students. This design forms a funnel, which symbolizes that the university is open to and inspired by the outside world. Therefore, coherence and interaction between the city and the university are expressed, which shows the accessibility of the university for everyone.
