Final design Zernikeborg Groningen

On 25 November, project architect Erik de Geus presented the final design for the Zernikeborg; the new, impressive building for teaching and research in science & engineering for the University of Groningen. This building endorses the University’s commitment to continue its work in important international research fields, such as chemical engineering, nanotechnology, materials research and astronomy. The Zernikeborg will be an imposing building comprising three interconnected V-shaped wings. The sheer size of the building is impressive: it boasts more than 62,000 m2 of floor space, with a total length of 260 meters and a width of 63 meters, making it the biggest building on the Zernike Campus Groningen.
The presentation of the final design for the building also represents a milestone for Ector Hoogstad Architecten. ‘As designing parties, we are incredibly proud of the design for the Zernikeborg, which came about after consultations with countless people from inside the University,’ says architect Joost Ector. ‘Despite the complex nature of the task, including the special technical requirements, earthquake resistance and a tricky phased building schedule, the design of the Zernikeborg came about very naturally and promises to provide an arena where people and high-tech research will flourish side-by-side.’
3D impression of the Zernikeborg is available.
