UPF departamental building



    • The building‘s architect was Juan Navarro Baldeweg and the structure was opened in 2008 after a 4 year long construction period.

      It is part of the Pompeu Fabra University and houses two research institutes. From an urban planning perspective, the structure was built at the end of a continuous chain of historically built edifices yet is distanced from the neighboring structure through a joint gap.

      The building fills this gap with its red Façade and distances itself from the older setting at the same time. The other façade surfaces are designed in a much simpler manner. It is possible to enter the building via a ramp at one wall, connected to the joint gap side and allows access to all storeys.
