University architecture

When studying, campuses become a second home for almost every student. In order to create suitable learning spaces and meet the needs of young people, architects must combine functionality and innovation in their designs.

education and design

Modern universities with their appearance often resemble futuristic blocks as exemplified by the lecture hall of the University of Bialystok designed by ARKON Jan Kabac and Meteor Architects. Architects are increasingly relying on bold, innovative and ecological solutions in their projects. Modern technologies and designer interiors are not only conducive to education, but also influence the formation of relationships among students. Buildings sometimes take advantage of the architectural heritage of a particular city as in the case of the project of the Krzysztof Kieslowski Radio and Television Department of the University of Silesia in Katowice. Interior design is particularly important at art universities, which develop and shape a sense of aesthetics among their students. The University of Arts in Poznan has, among other things, a television production studio and a photography studio.

modern student residences

An integral part of the university's infrastructure are student dormitories, which in modern designs resemble comfortable hotel rooms. The student house usually features separate study areas and inclusive spaces for leisure activities. Often there are other amenities in student houses, dormitory in Rotterdam by Mecanoo has self-service laundry facilities, bicycle parking, and if needed, students can take advantage of concierge assistance. Innovative designs go one step further, providing students with activities such as a climbing wall and a room for yoga and meditation. In the future, Warsaw University, too, thanks to cooperation with architects from the Projekt Praga studio, will be able to boast a new student house in Służewiec. Architecture is constantly changing to meet all the needs of a dynamically changing world. Architects are inspired to create projects by the ever-evolving human lifestyle.
