Spatial planning principles: A simple principle is taken into account in the spatial organisation of the university complex – the development is higher along the busy streets and railways around the perimeter of the site, while decreasing in the direction to the inner part. This creates a pleasant human-scale suitable environment within the complex. This free-standing composition of masses defines front courtyards with their main entrances into the buildings as well as serving as main gathering space of the students.
