The hall of the university is on the diagonal. It is a glass volume inserted between the two volumes of classrooms and research rooms. On four levels, this glass box offers to the view the wood and the river from the inside of the building. A staicase pierces each level of the hall to give a transparent promenade. At nightfall, a blue light underlines each floor to emphasize the glass box.
