Designed by

Norman Foster and Partners Architects

The idea of Foster + Partners replaces the planned pavilions layout of the preliminary studies of the University, with two groups of buildings unified by a single roof canopy. The strong identity of this project has immediately set a “land mark” for its originality.

A new four-storey library is located on the northern edge of the site, parallel to the River Dora, with the Law and Political Science faculties to the South.

Each faculty has its own entrance from the central courtyard. The geometric complexity of the layout, which originates from the free volumes designed by Foster + Partners, has led to a sophisticated internal spatial differentiation and to innovative solutions developed to give formal unity. The potentially monotonous sequence of more than 330 offices, which occupy the 40% of the project, becomes lively by means of the curved shape of the corridors and the common areas and, through their transparencies, they open interesting views towards the inner courtyard and the city. The same positive principle applies to the fully glazed walkways which connect the buildings and which are an original architectural feature of this project. Borrowing the successful term coined by the architects Gabetti and Isola for their building at the Politecnico of Turin, one can speak of “urban windows”: large cuts, which create unique sinuous volumes and de ne glimpses of views and transparencies.
