Old and ‘isolated’ modules from the ancient Hospital have been integrated in one functional unity, so as to create a modern educational center that also maintains the vernacular architecture. “A place to teach architecture in class but also by the building process”. It is a symbol of the neighbourhood and the city, where future architects will count on impressive facilities.
