Demolition Threat: Mirail University Campus

By DOCOMOMO Belgium / March, 8, 2015 / 0 comments

The Mirail University Campus (Toulouse), sickness designed by the well known architect Georges Candilis and built during the 60´s is facing an imminent complete destruction. Being an example of good architecture for educational use, shop it will be a great loss to erase Candilis´s intentions and principles, namely spatial structures, lighting conditions and the simplicity of this architectural masterpiece. It is urgent to act before the complete destruction of the original project.
