A K W A G L O T
by DE JENZ, 2021
Utrecht University,
Singel Canal, Utrecht (NL)

A K W A G L O T
is born out of the wish
to create a high impact meeting place: an open university manifest by
a floating platform.

The name
A K W A G L O T combines the pronun- ciation of aqua - water and its qualities of flow and movement, environ- mental adaptability and sensitivity; with -glot
a Greek word for tongue referring to "having a tongue," "speaking, writing, or written in a language".

Continuing the Utrecht tradition of removing
the ramparts when the fortified city became obsolete,
A K W A G L O T manifests a university without walls - open to the entire community.
