LEUVEN UNIVERSITY (KUL)

Leuven Bioscience

Project description

SVR-ARCHITECTS consortium, Proof of the Sum, de Klerck study bureau and Exilab are laureates for the “Leuven Bioscience” competition
written out by the KU Leuven. This brand new building will be erected on Campus Arenberg. This is a new construction of 12 floors with a total area of 27,000 square meters. “Leuven Bioscience” will be an impressive building and will stand out after the famous tower from imec to the crown, but the latter will remain even higher. Nevertheless, “Leuven Bioscience” will help determine the Leuven skyline from 2022 onwards. Work will start in 2020. KU Leuven is investing 38 million euros in the biotechnology research center.
