Buildings for education
In the 1960s a new practical, functional site for the science faculties of Groningen University was built to the north-west of the city centre. Besides faculty buildings it includes some higher professional education institutions and a sports complex. West 8, entrusted with revitalizing the university's Zernike Campus, sought to make it an open green landscape dotted with autonomous buildings of distinction. Inbo's striking blob containing the Centre for Information Technology (Zernikeborg) has a ceramic slate finish.
