DescriptionThe New University of Valle d`Aosta, following a competition, commissioned MCA to realize the restoration and transformation of the former Testafochi barracks into a university campus for 2000 students. The design is based on functional organization, giving each building autonomy within the project. The general appearance of the building combines lightness and transparency of forms and materials, formally incorporating the building with the square. The new project, in addition to fostering cultural activities, will add to the quotient of green space accessible by the entire city. The complex was developed with rigorous and thorough research on energy efficiency.
