It is located in a prominent site adjacent to the University Quad. It was purposefully placed in the edge of a green esplanade back dropped by the Theater’s rear wall.
The first level has amply shaded pedestrian areas and a covered central space, apt for social interaction. A wide corridor, originally planned as a connector to the covered galleries of the University Theater, traverses the second level. Neither the bridge nor the sidewalks that continued past the Theater were constructed.

The most commonly used areas – the theater, the library and the large classrooms – are located in the first two floors. Three more levels rise above the latter, housing faculty and academic spaces.

A typical floor layout has offices facing the window side and flexible large academic spaces in the interior areas. Vertical circulation occurs within three towers that anchor the structure to the site, thus making the activity of ascending and descending into an important experience and allowing ample views from each level.
