Barroque Epoch, Barroque City

How to project a building in
Alcalá de Henares? How we could join the
legacy of the history with
modern architecture?

The project School of Arts is based on reflection. A city built up in bricks. The new volume integrates itself in the city showing a massive fachade which meets tradition and connects with the material essence of town. Afterwards, the building develop a new rational and light metalic structure hangin from concrete walls creating an indoor cloister.
