Emilio Tuñón in Cartagena

Pillars and Trays


The Madrid studio of Emilio Tuñón has won the bid to expand the architecture school of the Polytechnic University of Cartagena (UPCT). Its design divides the program into three blocks: the existing building, containing administrative services and offices, set to undergo renovation; the library, thought out to take up the the rear part of the latter; and a new block for classrooms, workshops, and laboratories. On the premise of generating flexible open spaces that invite participation, the structure of horizontal trays will leave a series of perimetral galleries open to the exterior. The two buildings, the current one and the new construction, will connect through a walkway on the first floor and an access ramp rising from the ground floor.
