We develop an idea of industrialized modulation based on a grid of 7, 80 x 7.80 optimum in economy of garages, structural, universal multiple of 0.30 / 0.60 / 0.90 compatible with any system on the market (maximum adaptability) which allows an easily movable architectural solution anywhere in the plot and always absorbs the maximum occupancy of the current regulations.

The image of the campus from the outside is bleak. Concrete and brick in repetitive and bland blocks overlapping speak of the macizacion of the territory. The artificial has devoured it. We want to open a hole to this barrier and build a vacuum in nature that enhances the lost ecosystem. The new image of the campus will illuminate with a topography of gardens that establish a direct, optimistic relationship and future with the four columns of the UAB, on the other side of the road, opening up a conceptual and symbolic, crack on the urgent need to raise the architectures, from the green roof (with all its benefits) required spaces built on the territory. We planted the genesis in height of a new ecosystem of plant space and animals that return to the place that had never lost. It is not a building topped by greenhouses. The building itself is a possible landscape built to seat some of them. Emptied, we do not overwhelm the space. This is which we think as best proposal from architecture. The flexible dematerialization in squares, gardens, orchards, games, parks, etc. that you are climbing towards the horizon of the campus.

From base module to the entire system. Dry construction of all the module base (7.80 x 7.80), maximum industrialization of the same. Optimal Seriation and compatibility with different scales and commercial systems on the market (0.30 / 0.60 / 0.90 / 1.20, etc.) both in floors, ceilings, partitions, carpentry, etc... Reusable, recyclable and easily readapt structural systems to other future uses. Maximum lighting and direct ventilation of these modules. These modules combining flexible stacking. Integration outside of all facilities that serve the system encouraging adaptability in time to the different variations of the future uses, without mortgaging the possible distributions.

The envelopes of these modules solution to adapt to the different orientations in each facade and achieve maximum passive uptake of them according to these guidelines and the successive skins that are built on them.

Maximum flexibility in the modular combinatory both in horizontal and in vertical.
