Scroll
Words

An extension of Tilburg University campus in The Netherlands, the Faculty Club strongly relates to the university modernist architectural tradition.

“Its architecture refers to the heritage of Jos Bedaux by abstracting and updating his formal language.”The building, designed by Shift architecture urbanism, serves as a multipurpose pavilion for the academic staff and their guests. The studio took the initiative to reanimate the quintessential quality of the Tilburg campus: strong solitary buildings in the green. The monumental modernism of Jos Bedaux, who designed the first buildings for the university in the sixties, served as a main reference to the designers. They explain: “Its architecture refers to the heritage of Jos Bedaux by abstracting and updating his formal language. This makes the building into a solidary solitaire, sober and luxurious, massive and transparent, silent and outspoken.”
