Nieuwbouw Almere gebouw

Green lung

Aeres University of Applied Science Almere moved to a beautiful, inspiring new building! The construction of our new beautiful building started June 2020 and finished August 2021. It carries the name 'Green Lung'. The open design and integration of greenery in and around the building make it a healthy and inspiring learning environment for our students. Literally the greenest university in the Netherlands! 

The direction of our University is Arboretum West 98, Almere.

Take a look at the impression of the building:  

The Green Lung will be on the site of the Floriade in 2022. Our new university building is part of the campus in cooperation with Flevo Campus, a physical place where education, research and science come together. Not  only for students and researchers, but also for residents of Almere and beyond to get to know and think about the urban life of the future. Together we let the city live.

“I'm already so proud of our new building. It will literally become a green landscape from ground level to roof. And the best part is that we designed it in consultation with our staff and students.”

Wil Bekkering, director of Aeres University of Applied Science Almere
