Description Change this

The third largest Viennese campus model, Campus Donaufeld North, has been completed in 2012. The educational concept of the campus model aims to be an educational institution joining kindergarten, elementary school and after school education within one place. The usual idea of this kind of campus is realized by the use of overlapping outdoor areas (with different qualities and relevances), common rooms, circulation and functional rooms within the building.

Gangoly and Kristiner Architects' design discards this symmetry in favor of a real spatial conjunction of individual functions without denying their functional identity. The three main functional groups – kindergarten, elementary school and after school education – are not arranged symmetrically. The kindergarten and the elementary school are organized on top of each other creating a simple and in the long run flexible modifiable structure. A second U-shaped structure is attached to the main structure. Most of the courtyard is roofed which creates a central meeting point for children and their parents.
