ON-A - Instituto de Educación Física. INEF - This proposal arises from a deep analysis of the location and environment; it is a study of the existing to design the future of the Seu. The project, which is located in the most fertile zone of the Valira River, takes as an architectonic referent the Castellciutat.

The projects’s adaptation to the environment

Based on plot characteristics and the requested program and its surface,
it was decided the following:

– To generate a maximum line of building occupancy with a distance of 3.5 meters from the limits of the plot. In this manner, it is possible to have air within the bordering plot.

– To organize the program in an elongated band which is located on the north side of the plot. As a result, the maximum exposition is received by the south part and it does not shadow the rest, it ends the plot on the limit and it creates a north windscreen for the external program developing in the ground floor a unique height.

– This programmatic band bends on the extreme north to construct the plot’s closing on the limits of the northeast and it creates access to the principal entrance in the campus.

– A new topography connected with the existing one picks up the ground floor and allows: To potentiate the integration of the campus within the environment. It turns out to be the same referent as the Castellciutat which is a building sitting in the territory. To generate a valley of activities inside the mountain which is protected by the perimetral topography.
