EDUCATION CENTER FOR THE UNIVERSITY OF CORDOBA

Cities: CORDOBA
Countries: SPAIN
Designer: RAFAEL DE LA-HOZ
Date: 2014
Located in a trapezoid-shape plot, as part of Renfe 2 Masterplan – one of the urban extensions of Cordoba, (Spain), the building seems dramatically weightless, highlighted by the emphasis on the contrast of the façades: glass and concrete. 
The new education centre blends in with its surrounding urban backdrop. 
The north façade, double-skin, and east and west façades are covered in onsite micro-concrete with large windows that allow natural daylight to shine in. 
The south façade shows a translucent aluminium materiality with driven voids of light that embodies the building’s aspirations in the city’s fabric.
