amsterdam-based office paul de ruiter architects has sent us images of their competition entry for the design of erasmus university’s student pavilion in rotterdam, the netherlands. to serve as a place to meet, relax, and study, the project is intended to serve as an architectural icon at the heart of the campus while remaining energy neutral in its operation.

using the sun’s light and energy as a point of departure, the pavilion is a transparent structure with full glass facade. the roof, which features a system of intelligent solar panels, allows natural light to filter throughout the entire interior. careful consideration for the orientation and placement of the skylights ensure that direct sunlighting and overheating are avoided. other sustainable applications include a geothermal heat pump, a thermally active concrete core, and minimal use of materials.
