Art and Architecture tour on the campus

The University of Twente has a unique campus. It was built in the sixties according to the most modern insights on architecture and urban planning. In the seventies, a younger generation of architects decided to construct a number of remarkable and labyrinthian buildings, which contrast beautifully with the formal buildings from the sixties. As a result, the UT-campus became an open-air museum of modern architecture.


Besides these remarkable buildings, you can find a lot of artworks distributed over our green campus. Always wanted to know the story behind the ‘The Little Tower of Drienerlo’ or ‘The Thing with The Hovering Telegraph Poles’? Then take a walk!
