University Technology Park, Castelldefels, Spain
STONE STUDENT HOUSES ON THE LAKE.
Actually the University is rounded by an artificial lake: natural-artificial limit that connects with the Olympic channel beside (Barcelona 1992).
The lake has created its own microclimate where spontaneous vegetation grows. The project proposes the landscape to keep growing by its own natural way.
The vegetation and the lake already defined its own limits and the lake is proposed as a frame where the stones houses will emerge: stones islands that float on the lake. Aquatic refugees that link the University, the landscape and the city.
