The overall pop- ulation of students is increasing annually by roughly 2-3%. Total students from the UAB 2022 report: 27,203 Bachelor students, 2,987 Masters students, 5,835 life long learning students, 4,629 PHD stu- dents To note The student population is mixed with 20% of it’s population being foreign students and those on erasmus programmes. This is due to UAB offering 24% of its courses in english and promoting international mobility. Staff The secondary users are staff of the university. The staff consists of teaching, research and administration staff. The teachers are both of domestic and foreign origin. Total staff from the UAB 2022 report: 2,760 research and teaching staff 1,200 administration staff To note The staff population of the university can also be combined with the both primary and sec- ondary schools in the area and the APPLUS company. These working professionals all work and use the area. Children The Bellaterra primary school and the Pere Calders secondary school are both featured in the northern part of the campus. These schools offer students a access to various facilities in the area and offer a range of extra cirricular courses such as coding classes. The presence of these students indicates a need for a mixed use space. One in which both user groups aged 6-12 and also 12-18 are catered to. To note During the academic year and summer the students use the campus. Summer camps of- fer students trips and visits around the cam- pus, using and organising activities throughout the area. These range from games to classes. Visitors Due to the campus offering a range of conferences, workshops and research opportunities, visitors may visit the campus. These occassional visitors are both students and work professionals. During their stay, they spend time on the campus and use the facilities and spaces present in the area. These visitors come from all different cultural backgrounds and fields. Due to these reasons a hotel is present on campus to welcome these visitors. It also is a venue for conferences with 9 rooms allowing for 650 attendees. To note The Serhs hotel is a four star hotel on the UAB campus. This hotel offers spaces for functions and has 104 rooms. They offer deals for at- tendees and also tourists. This promotion can lead to a mixed visitor demography. User profiles on the UAB campus

  • 9. VISION & STRATEGY MANIFESTO Foster the community engagement in new spaces. The creation and improvement of the quality of the social environ- ment encourages the participation and interaction of the staff/students through workshops/events and volunteer groups. The new spaces offer opportunities for physical activity, recreation and play for people of all ages and abilities. Cooling effect. Increase canopy cover. The increase in canopy cover and biodiversity will result in reducing the overall temperature in the campus by creating a cooling effect with the shade provided by the trees and shrubs. 1 2 3 4 5 Increase biodiversity while preserving the current ecosystem. The selection of different plant species, without removing the existing ones, ensures a higher range of habitats and thus fauna diversity (bird and insect species). Quality of education. The connection of students with nature will re- sult in a direct increase in productivity and improve the overall quality of academy work. Ensure equal opportunities. The creation of a safe space accessible to everyone improves the over- all health and wellbeing of the community by promoting the 3:30:300 rule. Bring people closer to nature. Digital detox for the people on the campus who stay in closed envi- ronment by giving them an atmosphere which brings them closer to nature and making them understand the importance of preserving it. 6 Use of more sustainable materials. Reduce the concrete in the campus and use more sustainable and po- rous materials in long term through the new design plan for meander- ing forest. 7 8 9 10 Prioritize wellbeing The activity areas and new campus design will help enhance the well- being of staff/students by increasing the quality of life and reducing Healthy eating habits edible garden. The edible garden and enhanced knowledge about the biodiversity in the campus through workshops/events will ensure healthy eating hab- its among the students and staff. Promote local plant, birds and insect species. Through the new canopy cover (plants, shrubs and trees) we will ensure that the species for local plants, birds and insects are increased in the campus through natural pollination.

  • 17. CONCEPT & DESIGN MODULAR MODEL Supporting social activities in the forest Throughout the campus students can be seen interacting with natures. Some of the activities we observed consisted of reading a book in the shade, sitting in the grass with friends and eating lunch amongst nature. As a group we realise the importance of these activities and that they should be supported. Thus our approach consists of the integra- tion of activity ‘pods’ in the forest. These pods offer a range of options catering to all users. They vary from public, semi public to private endeavours. Incorporated are all user categories; students, children, staff and visitors. One of the most important spaces is the modular system. This approach contains a series of boxes made from recycled wood and corten steel boxes. These forms can be arranged in various arrangements promoting a series of different activities.

Height: 1.5 m Bloom: March- June - Any type of soil but prefers limestone soils. No fertilizers or pruning needed. 12) Cistus albidus TREES SHRUBS Planting within the design strategy: Through the use of suitable plants with different capacities we can incorporate them suc- cessfully in our design. Plants are used as natural noise barriers (such as the cupressus ari- zonica) and to provide the necessary shading for various activities. The choice of plants will compliment each activity and act as a natural seperator for each zone. The approach incor- porates varied heights and shrub species. The perimeter of the site will contain the heighest plants, while the shorter plants will be featured in the middle of the path- to not hinder its natural flow.
