A public footpath that leads straight through the building has now redefined pedestrian circulation on the campus. The result is an architectural ensemble that creates not only an organisational cross-link with the southern part of the campus, but also a spatial connection. The oblong building is arranged around two courtyards: one is the actual forecourt while the other, located on Level +1, creates space to the rear of the dining hall and connects to it via a bridge. The embedding of the building in its urban context unfolds an organisational logic in the interior as well. The two courtyards carved out of the building block divide it into various sub-centres as organisational units for the various university departments. The most public part of the institute is located in the centre of the building – the multimedia lecture hall. The one-storey offset of the two exterior courtyards, which are linked through the ramp system of the public footpath, is achieved through the rising tiers of the auditorium inside.
