Our proposal for the new facilities of the Joint Research Center in Seville aims to provide an attractive, efficient and optimistic solution for a 21st century work environment. The result is an architectural landmark that acts as an example, with a human and European approach, of both sustainable design and the future of work.
The proposal occupies the western edge of the competition site in a compact manner, allowing the creation of a semi-public outdoor park, an oasis of natural cooling and shade, on the site, with the intention to offer the employees of the JRC the possibility of using these spaces for rest and meetings.
The shape of the building arises from the combination of the two main directions of the Guadalquivir river, a rectangle, which twists, optimally generating solar protection and comfortable interior and exterior spaces.
The proposal benefits from a wide selection of sustainable materials, optimizing the life-cycle and reducing carbon emissions.
