Photographer's Note

Not the library this time, but another unique piece of architecture: The Educatorium.

This is one of the lecturer-rooms in the Educatorium on Utrecht's campus 'De Uithof'. Within the Educatorium-building you can find many different shapes, sizes and (natural) materials used to create this building.
In this shot you see the outside of the Theatron: one of the two main conference rooms inside this building. Besides lectures, also (external) conferences like A Struggle For Peace, organized by student's associations, are held here. The walls of Theatron are just plain cement and the stairs are made from wood. Though it looks a bit boring and cold, it's quite a nice hall. The fact that most of the light in thuis building is still daylight (there are big floor-to-ceiling-windows left and right of this scene) makes the cold atmosphere a bit less depressing, but it's still not a place that looks appealing to just sit down and relax.


The Educatorium was designed by the Office for Metropolitan Architecture/Rem Koolhaas & Christophe Cornubert
Year: 1997


*****
The Educatorium combines two existing buildings dating from the 'sixties by means of a hybrid glass and steel construction divided by a strip of cement whose lines reflect the trajectories of student life and identify various functional spaces.
The building covers 11,000 square metres and hosts two theatre-conference halls (for 400 and 500 people), three examination rooms, a number of study rooms and a 950-seat canteen.
