Linnaeusborg at the University of Groningen is a green building - literally. Not only is it colored green, but it has a green roof and features energy-efficient, smart, future-proof design. This zig-zagging horizontal tower is the new building for the Centre for Life Sciences of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at the University, which is located in the northern Netherlands.
Designed by Rudy Uytenhaak Architectenbureau, the life sciences building holds space for laboratories, greenhouses, animal housing, offices, and classrooms all dedicated to biology, zoology, botany, microbiology, and biotechnology. Built around the principles of interaction, dynamism, and flexibility, Linnaeusborg is a high-tech facility with a decidedly green twist.
