Across from Berlin Zoo, in the heart of Berlin the Technical University plans to expand its existing campus onto a free plot. The area plot links a number of dramatically different urban conditions. The scheme proposes to develop and focus the public realm qualities in the area around two main connections: a park-like wedge towards the canal and an urban diagonal Optimizing the pedestrian route to the campus from the station. In the park, a number of listed buildings will get a proper park-like setting. Along this spatial framework the faculties can develop in a flexible manner. The existing library complex will play a much more prominent role in its context.
