Linz, the capital of Upper Austria, as well as Austria`s third largest city, has been in years of upheaval. Topics of urbanization, expansion of public infrastructure, as well as cultural and educational policy objectives are at the forefront of local urban policy. The most up-to-date measures in 2017 are the construction of the second urban Danube crossing and the associated expansion of the public transport network as well as efforts to further develop the University of Linz. In view of these tendencies, the bridgeheadarea Eisenbahnbrücke South is gaining significance and has become an important development area in the urban context. The current use by the settlement of permanent allotment-garden area will not meet the future relevance of the site. The new "Danube Campus Linz" provides space for the expansion of the Johannes Kepler University and forms a new attraction along the Donube boardwalk. The settlements of a faculty of humanities is the main focus of the design part of the project. In order to meet the building task, differentiated planning and location possibilities of university buildings and their importance in the urban structure are investigated. The "Danube Campus Linz" thus enables the Johannes Kepler University to expand in the direction of a full university, and also acts as a pulse for future urban developments.
