The design, selected from a total of 57 submissions by a jury of eleven chaired by Prof. Arch. Daniele Marques, meets the university’s wishes for an architecturally sophisticated project with outstanding provision of interconnection between different types of space.

The project stands out by virtue of the potential it offers for communication, the high quality of both exterior and interior space, very good connections to immediate urban surroundings and the local district as well as a direct connection to the existing teaching hospital LKH-Universitätsklinikum Graz. Also worthy of particular note in the jurors’ opinion is the detailed consideration given to energy-related aspects, this being a significant objective for the university.

The MED CAMPUS project will be constructed in two modules. Construction will start in early 2012. The first module’s first phase of construction will involve realisation of the ZWT (center for knowledge- and technology-transfer) through till autumn 2013. The MED CAMPUS is scheduled to come into service in stages starting in mid-2014.
