Modellenbureau ARCAM exhibits a variety of architectural models from projects developed in Amsterdam. Mecanoo contributes to the exhibition with the model of the Amsterdam University College. The models will be displayed from February 23rd to September 2nd, 2018 in the ARCAM, Architectuur Centrum Amsterdam.
Amsterdam University College (AUC) marks the entrance to the Amsterdam Science Park, the International Science Centre located in the Watergraafsmeer district. The faculty houses the three-year bachelor programme in Liberal Arts and Sciences of the two Amsterdam universities UvA and VU, and accommodates 900 students. Mecanoo designed the AUC building as a home for the international community of students and teachers.
The compact building volume and sedum green roof contribute to the sustainability of the AUC building, which has a Greencalc+ rating of 200. Furthermore the Amsterdam University College was awarded the Amsterdam Architecture Prize 2013 (Golden A.A.P.).
