Faculty of Fine Arts, University of La Laguna
Located beside the Campus of Guajara, in the city of San Cristóbal de La Laguna, the stylised curvy outline of the Faculty of Fine Arts catches the eye of every passer-by. Designed by GYP Arquitectos, it boasts more than 32,000 m2 (7.9 acres) of floor space and is surrounded by a public square that links the building to the rest of the blocks on campus. Its curves fold in on themselves in an architectural feat involving reinforced concrete and glass. Of course, the design features areas for artistic studies, but it also has room for exhibitions in order to open the faculty up to society at large.
