The planning aspects concerning layout, aesthetical and functional considerations of the RAU are given. Construction time was limited and the im plications thereof are discussed. The geological formation of the site is treated. A selected number of structural aspects are descriptionbed, eg torsion and relative displacements of post tensioned edge beams and several problems associated with columns consisting of a precast concrete shell and in-situ concrete cores. For the laboratories, the structural system as well as vibration considerations are briefly discussed. The structural solution for the roof to the grandstand of the main sportsfield is shown.
