Transformation from historical building to BKCity

On May 13, 2008 a fire destroyed the Faculty of TU Delft. After a short stay in a tent camp, the faculty moved into the old main building of TU Delft (Julianalaan) That building has been expanded with two large glass greenhouses, exactly one year after the fire. The construction of the greenhouses had to be done quick and cheap. This led to a functional design based on the space truss  of Octatube and a facade from the greenhouse. Source: ABT
