Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter from Denmark won the competition to design the new main building of the School of Economics and Management for the University of Lund in Sweden. The 16,000 m2 cubic structure will have four stories raised on a one-story base, which will altogether consist of lecture halls, research and student facilities, and green space.
The project is currently in its early stages with construction expected to begin in early 2015.

From the DMA press release:
"The School of Economics and Management is very excited about the proposal’s ability to link the new building to the existing complex, creating a unified identity for the school. It is further highlighted that the proposal creates an attractive environment for students and teachers with differentiated spatialities."
"The distinguishing feature of the new building is a four-storey cubic volume elevated above a one-storey base. The base of the new building forms a close-knit structure with the groundfloor of the existing buildings and contains a variety of lecture halls, open study areas, courtyards and green roofs.
The building represents the idea of the school as a unified centre for education and a modern and inspiring learning environment that attracts students and researchers from all over the world.
The construction of the building is expected to start early 2015 and the inauguration of the building is expected by the end of 2017."
