TU Delft is working on creating a pleasant campus for studying, working, carrying out research and living. An important aspect of this is maintaining the cohesion between the buildings and the surrounding area, including space for teaching and research, for meeting, for catering and for outdoor areas. These are the underlying principles for the redevelopment of the area around Stevinweg behind CEG.
The area will be home to many current and new users. To the north, the student accommodation Stieltjesweg is in use, with catering and other facilities (including SPAR University). At the heart of the area will be the new teaching building Echo which borders the newly renovated EEMCS building housing the departments of Mathematics and Computer Science (Van Mourik Broekmanweg 6). The layout of the grounds will be arranged to ensure cohesion between the many new and ongoing projects and existing buildings in the area. The outdoor space must give added value to teaching, research and collaboration with businesses. The redesign of the outdoor space includes the above-ground infrastructure (paving, grass, water storage) and the underground infrastructure (cables, pipelines, sewers).
