Paul de Ruiter Architects is well-known for its innovative and aesthetically stunning green ecotecture, and its latest designs for a solar-powered, super-efficient student hub for Netherlands Erasmus University is no exception.

The proposed structure boasts a vast array of energy efficient innovations intended to keep its ecological footprint as close to zero as possible, such as a sophisticated transparent roof full of light-harvesting tubes, and futuristic air-control systems that filter sunlight while also working in tandem with a ground heat source pump. Paul De Ruiter Architects has also included recreational features in the design however, such as a theater, study areas and even a café.
