  • Project Name: Masterplan for the Campus of the Kielce University of Technology
  • Location: Kielce, Poland
  • Year: 2011
  • Est. Costs: 45 MM PLN
  • Area: 218 ha
  • Service: Urban Planning, Landscape Architecture, Architecture
  • Stages: Invited Competition
  • Client: Kielce University of Technology
  • Project description:
    In an invited urban planning and architecture competition for the Kielce University of Technology we designed a masterplan including a conference centre, administration offices, an incubator for young businesses,  sports facilities, a stadium, Infrastructure and parking spaces, landscaping and the refurbishment of the existing buildings.
    In our proposal we divided the site for the urban development of 218 ha in four functional zones.
    1. "Infrastructural Zone" - New access and circulation roads and  parking for 355 cars on (8 600 m²)
    2. "Educational and Administrative Building Zone" - This zone contained the existing educational buildings (to be refurbished) and the proposed new buildings with bridges connecting in-between them. The program of the new buildings included a conference centre, administration facilities and an innovation and entrepreneurship incubator for young businesses. We proposed a rationally shaped buildings, which were corresponding to the rigor organisation of the existing buildings (Area of new buildings: 14 500 m²)
    3. "Student Living- and Leisure Zone" - We proposed the refurbishment of the existing Student housing blocks and added landscaped areas to increase living and leisure quality on the campus. 
    4. "Sports and Recreation Zone" - This zone combines the already existing sport facilities (Sports halls) with a newly proposed athletic stadium (13 500 m²) including service facilities (1500 m2) and a large landscaped area for various recreational and leisure activities.
    The overall design concept was abstracted from the functional layout, physical performance and visual appearance of a computer motherboard, that includes processors, memory, capacitors, and many other elements. These elements are in the most efficient way connected with each other by circuits paths. Projected onto the campus our designed buildings and urban interventions aimed to create a new visual and functional identity for the campus and establishes a faster and better communication, connection and information flow between the various buildings, departments and people to increase the efficiency, performance and appearance of the whole Campus.
