Campus and the City offers visionary perspectives on university and corporate developments and how they can be integrated more completely with their social, cultural, and economic urban contexts. The latest tendencies of campus design are presented through a series of international examples by renowned practitioners and experts in the field. In addition a collection of 32 worldwide selected projects provides a survey of diverse campus models.
Most of the satellite campuses built in the 1960’s and 70’s, such as ETH Hoenggerberg, are now outdated and in dire need of restructuring. At the same time, many new university districts are being established, especially in emerging Asian countries. In addition, corporations are increasingly seeking strategies that will encourage innovation and synergy within their centres or clusters, and look to the academic campus as a model for development.
In this discourse, the validity of traditional campus models separated from the city is being questioned, as this ‘ivory tower’ typology runs counter to the efforts of many of these institutions to reintegrate themselves into the urban public realm.
This volume addresses important aspects of new campus concepts, from spatial organisations promoting internal knowledge transfer and social interaction to the kinds of urban strategies that are needed to create sustainable centres of knowledge and learning that can flexibly respond to the changing demands of society.
