The project involves a clearly-structured ensemble of coherent structures and takes the urban planning guidelines carefully into account. These structures have distinctive characteristics that give them recognition value in the urban planning context. By designing the structures within the space available in differentiated ways, an exciting interplay is created among the buildings and open spaces and between public and non-public uses. The most important feature of the concept is the integration of working, teaching and leisure spaces in one common area. Openness, accessibility and communication also play important roles. The needs associated with the uses of the campus go beyond the boundaries of what normally falls within the “classic campus” concept, whether these are scientific needs associated with the medical research services or the public service needs. The project is modified primarily to meet these diverse needs by vertically staggering the areas used. The microclimatic parameters of the project were also modified by developing narrow, lengthwise structures, which allow for the delivery of the greatest possible supply of fresh air in the Graz Basin. During the first construction phase, primary teaching areas such as lecture halls and the auditorium were erected on two levels, with the so-called campus level acting as an important area of distribution, from which the institutes, laboratories and research areas are accessible. During the second construction phase, which is being planned, two pedestrian and bicycle bridges on the campus level have been planned that will connect additional teaching areas, the cafeteria and the administration building with the area created during the first phase of construction. As a result, access to the Graz State Hospital (LKH) for both pedestrians and bicycles will be provided. The Med Campus Graz is certified according to the ÖGNI and DGNB criteria and will receive the platinum certificate.


Since spring 2019 the HBK-Module 2 of the Med Campus Graz is under construction.
