The Chalmers Campus Lindholmen is a candy-colored university building that features dynamic geometries and angular construction. The stunning structure pays homage to the Italian Renaissance taking cues from the past while looking to the future.

The contemporary Swedish structure is based on the signature cylindrical model of town square structures, seen throughout the Renaissance. The bold building’s facade is reminiscent of a geometric mosaic, letting light in through a cluster of colored class windows.

The architecture piece, designed by Wingardh Arkitektontor features a highly complex facade that is both visually stunning and structurally sophisticated. The campus’ simple white interior puts emphasis on angular walls and irregularly shaped beams.

The structure’s sophisticated design is energy-efficient, employing the use of rotating screens to create and harvest shade. The Chalmers Campus Lindholmen is a green structure that has architectural and environmental consciousness.
