VIGO UNIVERSITY CAMPUS

Miralles Tagliabue EMBT en tant que Architectes.

Perhaps this is the right time to prepare the way that the University community can identify with a specific form of organization.The vitality of each faculty makes it necessary to redefine what the qualities of this place must be and how they are to be projected in the future.We propose to work in two apparently opposing directions, because they will permit an appreciation of the two qualities that already exist in this place.


Firstly, emphasise the natural features of this place: a magnificent location, the small inland valleys, the topography.The task requires co-ordination between the different operations already under way: a new access ring road, car parks, extensions to each faculty, integrated services, reforestation, a global proposal for the waste water collector, etc…This is a medium-term task that should return the features of the natural landscape to the site.Students should be able to make use of the landscape: silence, concentration, and intensepersonal work in an ideal place for it to take place.At the same time, on a more short-time scale, the new constructions insist on defining the community nature of university life.


In the short term, densify, almost urban.In the medium term, redefinition of the landscape.Transformation of the large sports area into a forest zone, defined by a big lake, which lets us blur the entrance infrastructure, until we transform the entrance road into a passageway between trees, then making the new series of buildings (Student services, shopping areas,swimming pool, gymnasiums, etc…).
