Construction of university buildings is growing in scale. Planning of universities today is about urban renewal, regional development and the creation of centres of excellence for research and education. In an international competition for knowledge and talent, universities and other educational institutions both contribute to and benefit from the physical environment around them.
Project Campus, a development project launched by the Danish Building and Property Agency, is investigating how the construction of university buildings can support this in practice. The project provides a catalogue of ideas and conveys knowledge and case studies to the Danish Building and Property Agency's customers, advisers and decision-makers.
Book about campus development
The Danish Building and Property Agency is putting the final touches on a publication about campus development, which will focus on methods and processes for the development of construction of university buildings on both a large and small scale.
How do we strengthen the interaction between knowledge, city, business and industry? And how do we develop learning environments for the students and ways of learning of tomorrow? These are some of the issues, which the publication discusses and shows examples of. The publication will be both in Danish and English, and is expected to be published in the autumn of 2013.
This publication is an extension of the publication "Campus and Study Environment- physical framework for universities of the future", which presented examples of how physical planning can help to create an optimal environment for research and learning.
