Bringing education to a higher level

The current education system is often book-based and lacks a link to the real world. Furthermore, there is a profound division between vocational and theoretical education. This institutionalized segregation is something the ‘Universe-city’ wants to get rid of.

The university of the future acts as a central hub for the city where thinkers and makers, such as farmers and biological engineers, work in close interaction with each other so that education and society become intertwined. Meanwhile, the proximity of different fields of education enhances the learning processes and can lead to interesting collaborations. Here, knowledge is not something acquired by studying the universal modalities in a generic classroom but by participating and experimenting in real-life situations.

In this place of inclusivity, egalitarian and mutual benefits come to exist, manifested as a transparent, lively structure in a concrete jungle. In a city where space is scarce and the spatial dispersion is at its limits, the project takes the form of a monumental skyscraper. Towering over the future city, it becomes a landmark in its existence.
