"...perhaps old age and fear fool me, but I suspect that the human species - the only one - is about to be extinguished and that the library will endure; illuminated, solitary, infinite, perfectly motionless, equipped with precious volumes, useless, incorruptible, secret."
The Library of Babel
Jorge Luis Borges
The project investigates the possibilities of generating a public space on the top of the central lane of the university, from the implementation of a figure, the space is inserted inside and is related through its privacy.
Its materiality reflects the nature of the square, its exogenous conditions, its mass is perforated so that it constructs views and controls sunlight. Thus, the architecture allows us to be linked and affected by its presence.
