STRATEGY 1 THE HEART PUMP
The project aims to be the heart pump of the future university. The existing urban condition of the different universities of the campus is but a series of buildings or groups of buildings that have no apparent relation to one another. Generating an element that can read into the existing condition in order to generate a new and unitary urban condition is one of the key objectives of the project. The generation of new and better spaces for the campus has given shape to the new construction.
STRATEGY 2 THE SATELLITES
A different approach was understood to be needed for the 8000m2 of the VTT area. Modular buildings, very regular and flexible can allow for very different uses. The height, number, and use of these satellites can be decided upon later on by the university. Respect again for the alignments of the existing buildings has been key. This same strategy can then be used in different places of the competition if needed and can even be used later on in different areas of the campus in order for helping the campus have a unitary identity.
STRATEGY 3 THE CIRCULATROY SYSTEM
The heart pump gives way to a series of arteries and veins that connect the new with the existing buildings. These connections provide the university with the necessary flow of students and staff throughout the different buildings. This strategy can again be applied wherever is necessary so as to integrate the different universities and allow for a horizontal knowledge flow and a new learning concept where Permeability Transversality, Transparency are necessary.
