Campus de la Justicia
Madrid (Spain)

In collaboration with Estudio Cano Lasso

 

The Access and Services building in Madrid City of Justice fits the western circle of the Masterplan. Close to the future commuting transportation center and to the main entrance to the complex, must be the welcome to every citizen coming into the campus. The program required liberates it of every restriction appearing in the rest of the cylinder-like buildings within the Campus, offering a nice opportunity to pack uses and build a heterodox cylinder volume.

The precise study of the program and the required connections among different uses, both in plan and section, allows us to explode the primary volume into different size pieces, pieces that remain nevertheless the original cylinder. Hence the possibility of generating a heterogeneous complex through addition and piling, where complexity comes from simply operations.
