The openness, accessibility and depth of the surrounding parkland is continued in the clear and light architectural design. A piazza is formed below the large roof supported by slender posts at the highly frequented level of the university’s main access route. The square is linked to the western part of the main axis via a broad outdoor stairway and therefore provides students and visitors approaching from different directions with an entrance that is protected from the elements. The light and transparent two-storey foyer, that looks out onto the park, is not only a pleasant place to linger and communicate but also a means of access to the various parts of the building. The information point, the first port of call, and the front office see to the first needs of the students and then send them for further advice to the other storeys, which can be reached via a broad circular stairway or lifts. In addition to the entrance to the student academy, the secretary’s office and administrative rooms, the foyer also provides access to the multi-purpose hall, which can also be used as an extension of the foyer space. During everyday university life, student’s can use the room to work in a lounge-like atmosphere; alternatively, it can be used for events and exhibitions.
