It is an interesting and very thorough project. The renders convince in the intention of creating an "urban place" full of life and sociability. The barycentric position, in fact, is very stimulating in this direction. However, I suggest limiting waterproof floors where strictly necessary by increasing the amount of greenery that is very important to reduce overheating. I would use floors with low albedo values, water tanks and more trees to improve outdoor environmental comfort. Also possibly raising the thickness of the floor between the ground floor and the parking lots in order to create a tank to contain trees and vegetation. Another suggestion is to treat the linear building in an architectural way by working on the relationship between the structural frame (which can also be seen on the roof) and windows. As it stands, it looks very schematic. Attention also to the two heads of the same building which are not seen in the renders but which require particular architectural attention.
The idea of the project was to create a space of containment for the students and everyone who accesses the university campus, as well as to unify the different Faculties within the STU campus. In this way we create a block with the functions of the innovation center and a glass cube covering the cafeteria and the exhibition space.
The proposal for the STU is based on a simple and regular approach, sensitive to the construction context, the central empty space is recovered, providing it with greater geometric regularity. Due to the changes in level by the slopes of the land, the starting point of the proposal was the leveling and structuring of the land, in only three levels of equal heights. The incorporation of a new building, made up of a block and a glass box, with its new activities and a system of vertical circulation cores and services, improve and optimize the operation and relationships between the existing buildings and the new building.
The structure of the complex was made with a slab system to achieve free floors. the materials used are concrete, steel and glass.
