The Inner City Education Center connects the various buildings in the Transcluster and brings more high-quality educational spaces to a central location in the city centre. In addition to workgroup rooms, project rooms and places for self-study, the complex will also have places for meeting and working together. The Education Center will be an inviting place for meeting, staying and knowledge exchange, in which education and research are intertwined and collaboration takes place across borders.

With its vision, the integral design team led by DP6 convinced the assessment committee in the EU tender: “an approach based on a clear and appealing vision, in which past, present and future are connected and made visible.
