Since the sixties, in the center of the UAB campus there had been a raised esplanade that was not urbanized until our intervention, in the nineties. With our project, this “platform”, that turned into the Civic Square, it connects all the areas of the campus: the train station and the Rectorate, the car park zone, the classrooms and the students housing. As well as this, around the Civic Square are located all the facility buildings that make the campus inhabitable: restaurants, rest areas, shops, spaces for the social encounter, a boardroom and a small theater. The Civic Square, therefore, not only provides the campus with an urban space, but also with a social and civic meaning.
