The building is put in the place following the indications of the competition, respecting the urban areas where it is put, creating a qualification of aggregation and creating a immediate identity. Because of this we thought it was needed a clear exposition, that translate itself in to a immediate perception of the places and the functions., in the division of the walkways, of the aggregation areas and in the separated entrances to the building that makes more movements possible at the same time.
A not secondary aspect is the importance of affirming the institutional identity of the building , the fact that it is recognized as an important element in the urban environment.
From a distribution point of view we have tried to respect the indications of the competition structuring the spaces of the varies faculties in so a way to obtain the maximal flexibility of the spaces and giving great thought about the communication between the students of the different faculties.
