UCSF is located in Guadalupe, a neighborhood garden of Santa Fe, whose distinctive features are the dense forest, low building density and use their neighbors make the street as a meeting between neighbors. In this context, the UCSF building with its 12,000 m2 existing architecture is distinguished by a discordant scale regarding the environment. The book proposes to recreate in its expression and its spatial attributes some of the identity of Guadalupe: the vegetation and the mode of appropriation of public space. The new building brings the environmental character of the neighborhood streets within their areas by using vegetation, both on the facade as an environmental filter as in the heart of enlargement with the presence of a pink lapacho. Also, an open and transparent ground floor offers a new dialogue between the building and the city, as an interaction between the central courtyard and the street.
The ground floor serves as institutional access to all educational complex north side communicating with the south wing and forming a cloister around the central courtyard. From this dialogic approach the building is defined urban city architecture, concepts dematerialize instituted demarcations and propose a new way to unite society. In terms of materials used and represented perceptions, the work recreates three episodes sequenced materials fall into three instances: 1 – Metal-plant, 2 – and 3-concrete plant – wood-concrete. A first instance is materialized into the street by a lattice vegetable content by galvanized wire mesh device, which provides sift facade, a situation that benefits the best interaction with the environment of Guadalupe, and environmental bellows acts as the floor classrooms higher. As vertical gardens, this mesh contains the delivery system, irrigation and drainage of six types of plant species in each season form a natural-artificial event versatile and changeable. The work includes a second stage with a succession of spaces to pronounce the interior-exterior joint, linking the horizontal opening of the ground floor with vertical tensions generated by the inner courtyard with its lapacho pink. As an interior patio impluvium this solves the storm drains of the building, device solved by an overflow of rain water that runs through a concrete plan from the roof into a ditch on the ground floor.
The third stage of the work onto the patio offers a response to contrast and rupture. Wood umbrellas transcribed into the building a set of shadows and reflections on the rails glazed, thereby generating an intense environment in which pass the main activities of interpersonal relationship and meetings between members of the university community.
