Text description provided by the architects. On its urbanside, the building links its geometries with the neighbor hotel to configure a square. On its facade opened to a green corridor of the Vallès, takes the form of a crescent, hosting the Sant Domenech Valley.
A hole in the main volume creates a balcony that not only binds square and crescent, but also links the three valleys that create the topography of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.
The materials, colors and various construction solutions -from prefabricated to in situ- do not want to be different but integrated with the architecture of the place, though they may be only discrete. The attention to place wants to unify, at the same time, the oldest and the newest.
