The five-storey landmark of the University Campus in Bohunice opened for students for the first time in autumn last year. With its 8,000 m2 and more than a thousand simulators, SIMU is the biggest and most modern centre of its kind in Europe.
SIMU is not only unique in its size, but also in its urban and architectural layout. The design was developed by the architects from the AiD team. The southern part of the building consists of a five-storey building with an inner atrium, from which the rhomboid part boldly protrudes from the third and fourth story as a bridge over the Kamenice street. The tiles made of golden perforated sheet metal are also a significant element. Moreover, the whole building is low-energy and has green roofs covered by xerophytic plants.
The construction of SIMU took two years and cost almost a billion CZK including all the equipment. The construction of the Simulation Centre is a dominant part of the Strategic Education Investment Project SIMU+ at Masaryk University funded from the Operational Programme Research, Development and Education.
