School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg
Akademiska Hus Region Väst hereby invites submissions to a project competition for the design of a new university building for the School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg.

Aim and Common Vision
The objective of the competition is to generate a proposal for the design of a new university building with an integrated station entrance for Västlänken Station Haga. The building must meet the needs of the activities, be well designed and have good functionality. It must also have a clear identity that adds a new dimension to its urban context.
