Design Competition.
Jerusalem, Israel. 2006.

University is culture, discussion and interaction.
Jerusalem is interaction of cultures, times and languages.
The project conceptually resumes the structure of the old city and at the same time recreates metaphorically the organic conformation of the cracked deserted ground to solve the programmatic complexity and propose a building that will be a silent one as regards its exterior expression.
The proposal of the project is to come to the resolution of the needs of the program of the University, the recovery of a historical green space (plaza) that previous to the project was degraded and as from its implementation will take on a vital nature as regards consideration and insertion of the building in this site.
Morphologically, the building will be organized beneath a solid, moldable and foldable element (urban park) that based on a sustainable architecture, controls the light entrance as well as natural light of the building. Both density and heaviness of the covered-park element will contrast with the transparency and lightness of the inner structures.
The building in its interior will be a labyrinthic but mathematically calibrated pattern of glazed sizes linked among themselves by means of zenithal-lighted corridors. The organic generation of the parts will be ruled by the mathematic report of the Voronoi geometric.
