This beautifully austere science building addition is on the campus of the University of Alcalá in Spain, and from the drafting boards of Héctor Fernández Elorza. Because the technological and spatial needs of research buildings tend to evolve quickly, the original building was in desperate need of a renovation to bring the building up to the working standards of a modern facility.
One example would be the importantance that the space expands to accommodate new genetics research and office facilities. The result is an elegantly top heavy slice of building that is long but Shallow. You can see the extensive use of naturally-colored materials in the video along with the excess of natural light that floods the corridors and rooms of the addition. Of course, it helps to have photographers/videographers like Montse Aamorano showing the building in the best possible light.
