In 2010 the last NATO soldiers left the Tapijnkazerne. Maastricht University opened a new location for the economic faculty here. Three barracks in square around the 'appelplaats' are therefore currently being restored. New construction is added to this monumental ensemble. It is a cleverly thought out design. A transparent, deepened plinth provides access to the faculty and connects the existing buildings (with lecture halls, various teaching rooms and study places).
