This building, located in a broad domain of visual space, structured around a central promenade organizes its architecture as a series of open and closed spaces, establishing a relationship patios scheduled to give a hierarchy of related bodies, both architectures as coming with Vallparadís gardens.
The general accessibility of the center is made from space connection between the Rambla de Sant Nebridi and Igualtat street and one of their yards, as an agora or transitional space into the hall, pointed in different treatment pavement and carport. A second complementary access is from the street Igualtat. The body that summarizes the studios on the south side, offers the possibility of direct access from the street.
An east-west axis runs along the vertical communication cores. Three north-south corridors, one for each body, establish a simple distribution and contact with the outside. The school has a structuring of the areas that cater to the academic demands of the program, taking the student as first reference, and offer their spaces in a flexible and open.
