The new extension of the faculty of Medical Sciences is squeezed between a listed 19th century building and high-rise dating from the 1960s, all part of the University of Groningen. It’s also bordered by the new building for UN animal testing laboratories (by UN Studio) and extends from the newly emerging university plaza to the edge of the campus, which borders the inner city, creating a new portal between the town and the university grounds. It houses the Orthopaedic Institute for Joint and Movement Studies with a main lecture hall and a large foyer connecting the institute’s existing rooms. It therefore has a “joining” function in urban and programmatic terms as well. Some 1300 bicycles can be parked on the ground floor and the 3 upper storeys are used for teaching and research. In the foyer a concrete wall rises to the highest point of the giant lecture hall. This wall, “Chromosome Technology in Concrete Relief”, was designed in collaboration with artist Baukje Trenning.
