Universidad EAN – El Nogal Campus – Classroom building is the result of a competition by invitation, where we propose to set up a university campus where the buildings are as important as the common open spaces. A place where students can meet, study, rest, … a second home for education and fun. The strategy was to generate a large colective space, a central upward spiral, surrounded by a classroom building (Phase 1) and the offices and welfare building.

The classroom building responds to a seven level’s prism. On the first floor are locate the access areas and the central library. On the upper floors standard classrooms are located, ending with a rooftop terrace for collective uses. The prism is affected by a series of random outcoming concrete boxes that break the volume’s monotony while serving as studing and meeting rooms.

For the façade we developed, along with the manufacturers, a singular element:
stressed micro perforated green shades, protecting the interiors from direct sunlight. This element gives a particular image to the building while highlighting the “random boxes.”
