located in wageningen, netherlands, the atlas building at wageningen university features a distinctive lattice-like façade. the building is part of the university’s new campus on an agriculturally depleted field. the building needed a distinctive look because it is located at the entrance to the new campus. inside, the programming needed to provide research labs and office space with lots of flexibility, but the soil research lab on the lower level is stagnant because of its specialized nature. special attention was paid to the common spaces such as the sky-lit central atrium with criss-crossing circulation bridges. the unique lattice work on the exterior is made from pre-cast concrete and serves as a structural exoskeleton to make the interior almost column free.

  • University is a place without a garden, without international borders, without civic appeal, because all it needs is respect. And if a student needs any of these things, he does something about it in his spear time.
