A New “CONCEPCION” – University of the Americas

What started as an idea in 2002, has now been completed. The University of the Americas in the city of Concepcion, Chile. The idea behind this futuristic design was to bring a futuristic building to an urban area that is growing in logistics. The area of where the project began was once a quiet area outside of the city, which now is turning into a more centralized location for future growth. Constructed using reinforced concrete floors, with each building level being 60 meters in length. Wrapped in a colorful micro-steel, that covers all the floors except the first floor, gives the building a certain depth perception, but still allows for the light to flow through.

    It´s great, but this building is located in Chile, not in Spain.

    Concepción is a city of Chile, not Spain… I know someone told you first, but you need to correct your post. Is a terrible mistake for Chilean web viewers, like me.
