The new campus of Fribourg's university was built in 1939-41 on the site of the former Miséricorde cemetery. The plans were designed by Swiss architect Denis Honegger in collaboration with Fernand Dumas. The use of concrete is one of the peculiarities of the buildings as no natural stone at all was used. The concrete is not smooth, but was chiseled by hand to give it its texture.
