Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura, Granada

Former Militar Hospital of Granada (Andalucia, Spain) has been transformed by architect Víctor López Cotelo into the new headquarters of the University of Architecture. A brilliant project, where respect of the old building has been connected to the comfort and practicity needed to teach and study.

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.
