we propose a proposal that is based on the meaning of building on a university campus, in which the successive construction of buildings is shaping the image of the whole, and far from pretending to provide the building with a unique volumetry, we have thought it necessary that the effectiveness of its operation was the key to its conception. the search for efficiency, and the accuracy of the proposed response, is produced on the one hand in functional terms, seeking the optimal relationship of the units with each other and with the common services of the building, and each one with the outside, a medium that offers natural lighting and ventilation. likewise, we have worked with the clear will to propose an architectural scheme that would be able to solve the two buildings that are proposed for competition in parallel in the campuses of badajoz and cáceres. in this way we present two twin buildings in terms of configuration that respond with the same efficiency for both functional programs considering that the unification of criteria in both venues will also be advantageous for their organization and subsequent maintenance.
