UNIVERSITY’S SPACE AND ITS CONNECTIONS TO THE CITY

How do we transform a university built 100 years ago so it matches modern academic life? That is the question of this year’s last INTA, International Urban Development Association, which Helle Juul will moderate today.

A part of the answer could be that while the past higher education institutions had contact anxiety with the rest of society, innovation is a contact sport. It requires places where society and the university can come together. Modern campus development and educational architecture should focus on architecture that encourage social interaction and connects companies, the university and the city.

This has been one of the recurrent themes during Helle Juul’s career and has also defined a big part of JFAs DNA.
