With these 28 prefab modules and precise planning, the architects have succeeded in creating a comfortable, practical structure. In eight months of planning and only twelve weeks’ building time, they put up a building that now offers 250 students room for seminars and projects. In the lecture-free period, the building is used as a learning space open to all. As closed-off as possible and planned with mechanical ventilation because of the nearby railway tracks, the seminar building corresponds to modern standards without sacrificing ambience. The metallic shell fits cosily beside the steel building next door and the silvery gravel of the parking lot. The elevated entrance juts out like an open drawer, inviting visitors to go in.
