Mixed Landscape

on the intersection of different landscapes

The population of the small town As will have a large growth by the expansion of its university. However, there are not so many possibilities to expand due to the presence of forests and private agricultural areas.

The town itself consists of three different landscapes, a campus, a suburban typology and an urbanized area. A new dense central area of As will be built where the campus, the urban area and the forest come together.

This intersection has been translated into a mix of the key elements of these landscapes, in a sloping terrain with several public buildings as separate blocks in the Mixed Landscape.
