Teaching Center und Departments

Campus WU Teaching Center

The façade of the Teach­ing Center is made of Corten weath­er­ing steel, which with time will form a pro­tect­ive, colored pat­ina. The ma­ter­ial was also used in­side the Aud­it­or­ium Max­imum, ex­tend­ing the design of the façade into the in­terior of the build­ing.

Build­ing D1 faces the LC and houses the De­part­ment of Global Busi­ness and Trade and six Re­search In­sti­tutes. The Mensa cafet­eria, seat­ing over 600 guests and fea­tur­ing a unique roof garden, takes up the cent­ral, lower sec­tion. This area can also be ac­cessed dir­ectly from the TC build­ing. The tall, mono­lithic block on the right-hand side con­tains the mul­ti­func­tional aud­it­or­ium center. Vari­ous aud­it­or­i­ums, equipped with state-of-the-art learn­ing tech­no­lo­gies, of­fer teach­ing and learn­ing space for up to 5,000 stu­dents sim­ul­tan­eously.

Through the at­rium, stu­dents can ac­cess a café and the self-study areas for quiet work, ar­ranged in a spiral pat­tern around the at­rium. Pro­ject rooms en­cour­age com­mu­nic­a­tion and group work, and a mix of quiet areas and open spaces con­nec­ted by ramps and stair­cases provide a dy­namic at­mo­sphere. The Teach­ing Center houses all the Uni­versity's large aud­it­or­i­ums and the Aud­it­or­ium Max­imum, which seats 650 stu­dents.

All aud­it­or­i­ums, in­clud­ing the Aud­it­or­ium Max­imum, have nat­ural day­light and state-of-the-art equip­ment.
