The biological research center is designed as an organic system that evolves with time thanks to the use of modular parts that function both individually and in an integrated manner with the rest, favoring an interior-exterior interaction.
The building becomes yet another learning element by making it possible to attach pneumatic inflatable bubbles to the central courtyard and to the perimeter classrooms, thus extending their area and adapting them to different pedagogical experiences.
Located in a forest reserve, the building is drawn up as an artificial mountain of modules of different heights that adapt to the program and seek natural light permitting future growths through the repetition of this pattern.
A lightweight roof configured through the addition of tangent rings of different sizes protects a space with a double role: the permeability of its facade makes it possible for the building to function as a sports facility and as a public space.
The institute is organized by a system of solid and void modules with workshops and courtyards on the ground floor and classrooms on the first floor taking up just half a module, so that the two levels are visually connected.
The multipurpose nature of these facilities enhances their social dimension: Marinilla Park is a street, a garden, and an educational building; and Pinch Center is a playground and urban lookout. Projects like Timayui Social Garden or Pies Descalzos
