ITMO University is one of Russia’s leading higher education and research institutions. At the vanguard of innovation in Information Technology, Optical Design and Engineering ITMO adopts an equally experimental approach to education. For its new campus in the satellite town of Yuzhny MVRDV sought to capture the spirit of ITMO in a proposal that fosters connection, collaboration and experimentation. Aligning their proposal with the progressive ideals of ITMO, MVRDV developed a series of objectives that speculate on the future university campus.
The interaction between unique buildings gives form to a varied and exciting landscape: a series of green courtyards, open patios, filtration ponds, orchards, solar fields and arenas each distinct in character and function. Integrated into the landscape is a continuous roofscape accessible via stairs, tribunes and ramps that affords staff, students and visitors uninterrupted views and a fresh perspective.
