LIN Competition: Honorable mention "Micro Campus Köln"

LIN has been  awarded an honorable mention for its design “Micro Campus Köln” in the competition “Bildungslandschaft Altstadt Nord” in Cologne, Germany.

The design of the “Micro Campus” presents a vision for of a new urban Campus that will integrate the so far fragmented educational facilities into a new urban setting. New facilities such as a library and a cafeteria will complete the campus and will function as future communication points within the campus. Together with the existing educational facilities that surround the Klingelpütz park they will serve as a new platform for learning and exchange for the students as well as the inhabitants of the surrounding quarters.
