UPO-University Campus

The project is the winner of an International Competition for the reuse of the former Perrone Barracks and its conversion into a University Campus. The projects defines a new type of University Campus open to the city and revitalising the surrounding urban fabric. Historic buildings are converted into Aula Magna, Library and students Dorm while a new building is dedicated to classrooms. The architecture set a new relationship between the new and the historical surrounding buildings by reinterpreting the historical typology with a truly modern and innovative approach based on the dry construction technique.
