The thousands of students who climb the stairs to their unique school building every day probably take its unusual architecture for granted. Anyone else who takes the trouble to have a closer look at Avans Hogeschool will most likely be impressed when first faced with this gigantic concrete colossus. The bright green façade and the entrance with its wide stairs are uncommon to Dutch architecture. If you ignore the colours you could even imagine this building gracing an enormous freedom square in some obscure city in North Korea or China. Once inside, space prevails and you can see through the entire building from front to back. What seem to be empty spaces and wide passages are actually effective meeting points for students.
