For the realisation of this building a steel loadbearing construction has been chosen, together with a facade of black masonry and red as a supporting primary colour (such as the large industrial door). Herewith the building becomes recognizable, and part of, the same ‘architectonic family’ as the other buildings within the campus repertoire. Apart from the wind tunnel the building also facilitates other additional roles such as being a physical repository for the server room of the university.
