#5 Annex

#6 Campus Diem

In Gothenburg, there has been an architectural competition about a building addition to the University of Economics. Above, You may see the 6 finalists which are designed by:

– Yellon + Kim Utzon Arkitekter + WSP + Atkins, Sverige/Danmark

– Johan Celsing Arkitektkontor, Sverige

– Johannes Norlander Arkitektur + Arup, Sverige/Storbritannien

– Lundgaard & Tranberg Arkitekter, Danmark

– XDGA + Contekton + Integra engineering + Andersson & Hultmark, Belgien/Sverige

– Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos, Tyskland /Spanien

My favorite is nr 5, Annex, because of the clean, simple facade, which also connect and respond to the existing building, but with a modern touch. It also respects the existing building and let them both stand as equal solitaires, with a corresponding scale and aesthetic.
