To gather both students and staff, needed Mälardalen University a new central campus building in the city of Eskilstuna. The new campus's main goal is to create a feeling of belonging between students and staff and to become a strong symbol for knowledge in the city. Effectivity and shared use were introduced in the disposition of the spaces. AIX helped the University with the interior design of the building. The building was designed by Danish architects 3XN. The proposal was a spectacular building that incorporated a swimming hall located right down by Eskilstuna river, designed by Paul Hedqvist in 1933. Eskilstuna is an old industrial city with many characteristic brick buildings. Brick and water. Keywords such as warmth, variety, and human-scale were the common thread through the design.
