The Science Park Maribor scientific park is founded by the University of Maribor and is to occupy a section of a degraded former industrial area of Tezno at the south fringe of the city. Six individual buildings with a combined 30.000 m2 total floor area will be constructed on a 80.000 m2 site in several phases. These buildings, together with a shared parking garage, form ‘garden islands’ that accommodate irregular shapes of the site’s border; the way these islands are arranged on the site creates different ambients of open urban areas among them. Three larger exterior ambients are created by the location, orientation and height of each particular island: the eastern urban square, the southern green square and the main square next to the first building of the scientific park. This way, the maintained landscape is able to act as a propitious place for the employees, users, and visitors of the Scientific Park to meet.
