OMA unify a campus of individual elements in a typically wry intellectual manner
Solving the problem of the unified campus composed of individual elements in a typically wry intellectual manner, OMA’s winning proposal for this engineering school outside Paris comprises a gridded town-plan within a sheltering glazed superblock. The assemblage of lab units is divided by a diagonal street that leads at one end to a proposed metro station, and at the other end to the existing engineering school buildings. In the centre of the new campus a raised module - housing a gym, administrative centre and first-year classrooms - surveys the whole, providing a nexus that ties together the dispersed elements.
