Study at Delft University
Mecanoo was commissioned by Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) to build a library that would serve as the center of the university and provide a face to a campus the size of a city district. The renowned TU Delft library, created with the digital transition in mind, continues to exceed expectations more than two decades after its establishment. In our opinion,TU Delft library is inspirational for architecture students in the university.
A large lawn beside the Brutalist concrete theater is slanted at one point, and the library slides beneath it. A cone, the technical engineering symbol, pierces the lawn and library, connecting them like a pushpin. The structure includes climatic façades as well as an insulating walking grass roof. The landscape, library, and auditorium form a new unity that has become the preferred meeting place on the international campus of TU Delft.
The most famous alumni of Faculty of Architecture are John Habraken who is the former dean of MIT department of architecture, Winy Maas and Nathalie de Vries who are architects and co-founders of one of the most famous and best architectural office MVRDV and Siegfried Nassuth is alumni of Delft University, he is known as an author of Bijlmermeer.
