Niagara is to become a portal building of both Malmö University and the district Universitetsholmen in Malmö. The house with its 18 500 square meters will house modern facilities for research and education and will provide a meeting place for students, teachers and university partners and reinforce the University's location in the middle of the city and as a part of the city.
Niagara is designed by the Danish architects Lundgaard & Tranberg and consists of three separate buildings with five, seven and eleven floors, connected by a bright, open atrium. The atrium will span through the lower floors and create an urban space inside the building with a restaurant, café, shop, venues and educational facilities. Other parts of the house will consist of stimulating knowledge environments for students, researchers and teachers.
