Adolfo Ibañez University
This new campus located on the hills of the city of Viña del Mar, in a 20 hectare plot, overlooking the city, the bay of Valparaiso and the Pacific Ocean, attempts to create a unique compound for university life, that allows for a certain relationship between study and contemplation.

The various bodies that make up the building compound constitute a sheltered patio, whose gradated openings link the proximity with the distance, focus on the extension of space and open the patio into a large park that stretches along the slopes. The interiors of the various bodies are connected together by catwalks suspended above ground level which allows orbiting the entire set with no beginning or end.

The underlying idea of a new state of freedom – contrasting to that experienced at school – should become apparent when inhabiting it. Thus circulating and remaining still, these two acts, become multiple and one always has several routes to choose to go from A to B, all within a non-homogeneous spatiality whose turns and folds, size changes and gradations between dimness and light make the actual moving attractive: each step opening up new visions, building what we have called spatial breathing.
