Rules for rebuilding the campus: Bauhutte's Tilburg University Master Plan

  • Esther Gramsbergen TU Delft, Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment


In the coming years the Tilburg University campus will undergo an extensive spatial transformation. The university plans to demolish some obsolete buildings and build three new ones. The first step is the construction of a Teaching and Self-Study Centre (OZC), which is currently in progress. Its development began in late 2014 with a call for design, building and maintenance tenders; the contract was awarded to a consortium consisting of KAAN Architecten and the building and property developer VORM. At the same time the university commissioned Bauhütte, the design-oriented research group at Eindhoven University of Technology’s faculty of architecture (an explanation of the name ‘Bauhütte’ is provided later in this article), to draw up a master plan with design guidelines for future architectural and landscape interventions on the campus.
