José Manuel Cutillas


The faculty is located on a rural campus in a rather barren natural environment. The building, conceived as three concave rows of white »scales«, imitates a form found in nature to reinforce the existing complex with an architecture that can be thought of as part of a new nature. Each scale catches the light needed for each room. The light can therefore be easily controlled so that digital technologies can be used inside. The three lines enclose a room open to the sky. The relation of inside to outside is inverted here: the concave outer side happens to be the most interior space, and the convex interior becomes an outdoor setting.
