idea, that the project aims for, was to create a continous open space in the
center of the Metropol.
removing the building's core a visual link between the Boulevard and the park
the terms of reference required the hotel to be transformed into a students' dorm,
the whole space is devided in two elements:
the kernel, the public space diffusing from the core of the Metropol. This
space is devised as a lane, a pathway bent and planted inside the structure, providing
continous program and communication.
other part is the space on the left and on the right of the opening, where the students'
rooms are placed.
Metropol is located in the center of the city, sorrounded by numerous students'
facilities (the University Library, the Technical Science School, The Law
School, the students' canteen) the aspiration of the project was to create a
unique gathering place for all these students.
