University Architecture : Education Buildings

Major Academic Buildings + Projects from around the World

Tertiary Education Architecture

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of University Architecture. We aim to include Tertiary Education buildings that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.

We cover completed buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and design competitions across the world. The focus is on contemporary Tertiary Education buildings but information on key traditional buildings is also welcome.

Vienna University Building
The new Library and Learning Centre rises as a polygonal block from the centre of the new university campus. The LLC’s design takes the form of a cube with both inclined and straight edges. The straight lines of the building’s exterior separate as they move inward, becoming curvilinear and fluid, generating a free-formed interior canyon that serves as the central public plaza. All the other facilities of the LLC are housed within a single volume that also divides, becoming two separate ribbons that wind around each other to enclose this glazed gathering space.

UEL Buildings
This Tertiary Education building accommodates 400 computers organised in approximately groups of 30 for both teaching and open access, a 400 seat lecture theatre, seminar rooms and a University entrance foyer. The ‘L’ shape plan forms two sides of the proposed central college green at the heart of the reorganised campus in Stratford (the other two sides formed by the rear of the existing University house and our recently completed Department of Podiatry and Physiotherapy).
