Edificio Corporativo UcinfEdit profile
UCINF'S CORPORATIVE BUILDING The order requests an emblematic building, with a strong and recognizable image, while being representative of the university's 10th anniversary and able to transform itself in the new visible face for the next decades. The program includes 38 classroom, 1 magna classroom for 230 people, casino, library, laboratories and administrative areas all placed in a very complex site with an extremely tight front and a very large background. The resulting is a thin block that runs along the site. In the 1rst floor, the occupation is reduced to maximum to create interior courtyards. Also there´s a tripe height sunken courtyard (level -2),articulator of public areas, ( auditorium, library and casino ) and it gets cenital light for underground sites. The program is divided into classrooms batteries ( floors 2 to 8 ), with north openings and south circulations . Towards the northern front, the classrooms are exposed to light and the city. That is why we developed a dual skin that controls the excessive light into the classrooms through a graphic control element of passive light. (opacity translucency) This double skin operates also as a mattress to heat the rooms, through a passive air-conditioning system by convection of warm air. The crystal treatment of the external layer is defined by the filter grade, where four crystals of similar conditions are placed in a geometric form in the building, providing a unique exterior skin, which offers light to the interior by a commplex reflex of color and transparency.
