    Abstract:

    First prize in an open competition. The proposal takes into account the complexity of the program. The existence of three different activities together (teaching, conventions and eating services), but also with a great degree of interaction, has crystallized into a unified architectural solution. Three separate buildings that share the same base which absorbs the slope of the plot and hosts a series of interconnected spaces, seating areas, lobbies, restaurants.... as well as storage rooms and facilities. From that foundation emerge three main volumes, transforming the outdoor space as an agora, a place not only for circulation between the buildings but also for a recreational purpose.
