cagliari university dormitory by paulo mendes da rocha the white elements show the plan of the seaside student housing

 

 

 

cagliari, italy will not have a dormitory for students by paulo mendes da rocha. this is a side effect of the economic crisis on higher education, the local university has been forced to find ways to cut costs. last week, the cagliari administration decided not to invest in the already approved project by famed brazilian architect paulo mendes da rocha.

 

it’s unfortunate for the already difficult situation that sardinian students face. designboom thinks it’s a real pity as it would have been one of the world’s most beautiful dormitories, with a mensa view front seaside.
