The new education campus at the Main Station site is made up of a kindergarten, an all- day primary school and an all-day “New Middle School” and is a pilot project for children from the age of 0 to 14. In 2011 PPAG Architekten emerged as winners of the open, two-stage competition. The basis for the competition was provided by a spatial and didactic concept developed in collaboration with teachers. To implement this concept a catalogue of the qualities required was worked out. The Education Campus Sonnwendviertel started operation on 01.09.2014. It is now time for a first evaluation from the viewpoint of the designers and, above all, the users.
