New university campus in Gütersloh, requirement planning

Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences,
Gütersloh campus

Project description

With more than 10,000 students, Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences (FH Bielefeld) is the largest such university in the Ostwestfalen-Lippe region. At its Gütersloh campus, FH Bielefeld offers a very successful range of practice-integrated bachelor’s courses and extra-occupational master’s courses in collaboration with partners from business. 

In order to satisfy the growing interest in the campus, a former barracks site is to be transformed into an international campus using a holistic approach, with the aim of enabling people to study, live and work in a single location.

LOGO is conducting requirement planning for two expansion stages, integrating modern teaching, learning and working methods. The new architecture for learning spaces is to offer ideal conditions for collaborative and innovative working and researching, which is in high demand in the world of work.
