XAVEER DE GEYTER ARCHITECTS
FACULTY OF ECONOMICS IN GHENT 2006
The campus path that crosses the building, the topography, the nearby existing economics building, and the new program together generate the form of the building. The path leads down from the street towards the roof of the existing building. On one side are organized all the vertical circulation shafts of the new building, on the other side a double height foyer is accessed from the path. The auditorium is situated above it and accessed through a main stair. Behind is a meeting room of the faculty. On the top level a library is organized around a patio, combined with 5. The front and back facade are in glass and cantilever outwards; two lateral facades are in concrete, one of them being a screen made out of 20m high concrete fins.
