项目坐落于霍根特大学Schoonemeersen校区，全新的社会科学学院大楼(Building T)将成为该校区南侧的崭新门户，而体院馆与其扩建部分则将构成校园北侧的大门。Building T为一栋独立的教学楼，与其前方的Voskenslaan中学隔开了一定的距离，从而创造出一个开放空间。在未来的城市整体规划中，这个开放空间将成为沿街住宅与城市绿轴之间的过渡区。
The new Building for the Faculty of Social Sciences (Building T) acts as a southern gateway and the New Sports Hall Extension forms the northern gate to the campus. The Building T is a free standing volume, set back off the Voskenslaan, creating an open space as a transition between residential homes along the street and the large green axis of the future masterplan development.

Its monolithic massing communicates with its immediate surroundings with a permeable shading membrane, horizontal lamellas which evenly wrap the building’s englazed volume. The wrap opens up at the north-west side of the building in front of the plaza as a big entrance arch, unveiling the interior of the building on the ground floor. The big entrance arch act as inviting element which directs people form the plaza/lawn outside to the interior of the building.

The building has a ‘deep facade’ which consists of three layers: the inner, thermo-insulating layer of the simple curtain wall facade, made of transparent and laminated glass units, the mid-layer, where the fire escape metal passarellas are positioned, and the outer layer, the wrap of the fiberglass composite lamellas. A careful study of the insulation and shading of the classrooms in the building was conducted in order to define the optimum angle of the lamellas. Pultruded glass fibre reinforced polyester profiles make up the slats of the fixed lamellas around a volume with facades made from glass and aluminum. The profiles, 36m in length, were delivered straight to the site. On site, a number of profiles were bent elastically to create an inviting point of the main entrance to the building.

The porous monolithic volume acts visually as a recognizable mark of the future campus development. Namely, the most open, socially interactive central stripe of the building stretches to all way to the glass façade and shading lamellas, creating a visual connection between the street space and the activity in the interior, whereas more standard organized classrooms of the NW and SE stripe are visually detached from the lamellas by evacuation corridors. Thus, the building has different visual depths: the entrance arch is the deepest, the street and campus side are the shallowest.

The Building T is developed as a new school environment, as a hybrid studyscape, where students, teachers, visitors and a general public meet, interact, study, work and play. Long corridors are avoided in the building, as well as separation between vertical and horizontal circulation. Two big round atriums provide visual connection between the floors, vertical and horizontal circulation on the atriums edges provides a smooth transition between the floors.

The central stripe with the two atriums becomes a new type of school space. It is developed on four levels, from the entrance level to the inhabited roof. This is a space for meetings, gatherings, informal events, performances and spectating, as well as for study and work. It becomes a sort of interior semi-public space, a vertical hall, where activities on each floor are evenly stimulated by visual connection through the atrium space. On each level, there are entrances to classrooms on both side stripes, leading from the central stripe.

A social, visual and spatial permeability of the building are supported by its environmental / atmospheric character of the building. The displaced overlay of the two atriums, their roof, and lamella shaders, which provided insulation from autumn until spring and shading in summer, stimulate a migration of people and activities in the building. Their tendency to find the most comfortable place along the promenade in a certain season, as well as in the time of the day, provides a vivid and everchanging occupancy of different areas in the building.

全新的社会科学学院大楼(Building T)不仅是教学楼，还具有公共建筑的性质，在Building T举办的活动不仅面向校园，还将通过建筑展示给整个Ghent地区的公众与居民。因此，开放式的公共空间氛围不仅限于底层，而是通过公共长廊延伸到整个建筑中，包括展览区，办公区，自习室以及自助餐厅等。在本项目中，公共长廊即是校园生活的展示板。
The new Faculty of Social Sciences building gets a character of a public building, where activities of the school are not only presented to the campus but also to the general public and inhabitants of Ghent. This public environment would not happen only on the ground floor: the public path – the promenade stretches through all levels, passing by an exhibition area, working desks, study chambers and a cafeteria. The promenade acts as a presentation route of the life of the school.
