Our experience as users of a School of Architecture made us rethink the most used ways to design a building like this. In the university is easy to find the students around the lobby and cafeteria, as well as in the classrooms. Meeting places, therefore, need to be considered as places as important as the classrooms.
Brainstorming, exhibit and conference points are the real core of the university, and are developed in a more dynamic learning environment, different from the classrooms.
