JAIME BENÍTEZ REXACH BUILDING - SCHOOL OF GENERAL STUDIES
LOCATION : Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico
PROJECT AREA : 60,000 ft²
PROJECT YEAR : 2009
A new academic building to accommodate increased student population of this school which is a threshold to most new students. A monumental brise soleil designed with artist Nayda Collazo Lloréns provides the eastern campus entrance with a clear identity. The open area on the ground floor responds to our tropical climate and similar open spaces found in many other Campus Buildings which allow for casual gatherings, informal classes and even performances.
