Campus Design Symposium

Campus Design was an international architecture and urban design symposium. Hosted by the Chair of Architecture and Urban Design, the symposium was held on Thursday, 18 May 2006 at ETH Zurich’s Network City and Landscape. Campus Design offered a platform on which architects and planners could exchange critical and visionary perspectives on academic and corporate campus developments with representatives from the political, economic and social sectors.

The focus of the symposium was campus design in both the public and private realm, from the conversion and revitalization of mono-functional university centres to the creation of new campuses which seek to form lively urban districts. The latest tendencies of campus design were discussed through a series of international examples presented by renowned practitioners and speakers in the field. The discussion of this contemporary urban design phenomenon was centred on the current project for ETH Science City.
