contributed by jeannedekkers

The OZW health care and well-being training institute is a new landmark for the architectural landscape of the VU University. It embodies an innovative training concept that combines intermediate and higher level vocational training programmes and university programmes. The softly shaped brick walls that bring to mind the Amsterdam School are in keeping with the nature of the training programmes. The window spacing emphasizes the main outlines of the exterior and immediately draws attention to the transparency and vitality of the interior: a playful combination of training centres around atria. From the south side, the atria gradually and diagonally lend access to the facilities. From the base, one can see al the way up to the sixth floor. The utility core is incorporated in the 'back bone'. The private offices are at the far ends of the building. The public base is transparent and the mysterious volume of the lecture hall inside catches the eye.

Perfesser Bear says:
From above the roof, the building looks like a beefsteak!
Naomi says:
Hi jj, thanks for noticing! It's now changed to the right location, and now you can recognize the shape of the building on the satellite images.
