Scope and Content

The project series documents the design and construction of the general services building for the Universidad de Extremadura. In 1999, Abalos & Herreros in collaboration with Fomento won first prize at a competition held for enterprises. The firm identified this project as number 117.

“Giving the hard climatic conditions, the building is wrapped in an artificial and natural dual filter of adjustable lattices surrounded by a ring a trees (Ginkos Bilobas) […] On the roof, two turrets house relaxation rooms for the teaching staff, rooms that open onto a garden surrounded by a training track, thus creating an open-air area with views over the lowlands of the [River] Guadiana and the city” (ARCH270971).

In the documentation, the project is often referred to as “Edificio administrativo y de nuevas titulaciones de la Universidad de Extremadura” or “Administration building and new graduate facilities for the University of Extremadura”.

The firm worked with Ángel Jaramillo, Uriel Fogué, Renata Sentkiewicz, Jacob Hense and Obiol y Moya for the account of the Consejería de Educación, Ciencia y Tecnología, Junta de Extremadura.

Documenting the project are presentation and working drawings, and photographic materials.
