JHK Architecten and Broekbakema have shared with us their competition entry for a higher education school in the field of transport for Rotterdam. The building, envisioned as part of Rotterdam’s transport and logistics district, was inspired by the “distinctive sturdy structures of the port.”
A large street-level entrance and elevated public square marked by grandstand stairs welcomes students into the building. This leads them to the first four educations floors and an easily accessible sports facility located directly above.
Four additional floors of education facilities are stacked on top of a central meeting area, located at the heart of the building, which provides a restaurant, special meeting rooms, and large panoramic terrace with a bridge that connects students to the adjacent education building.
