Behind the lineal road, the plateau as a balcony over the meadow is converted into a platform. This landscape appears unprecedented and unexpected: the ochre colors and cracked land are transformed into the intense green and yellow colors of the agriculture possible thanks to the river hidden by the topography. Is in this frame, long platform, the place where San Jorge University buildings inhabit.

The Rectory building is conceived as a series of parallelepiped pieces that emerge and rise from the interior of a rectangular concrete block. The building has its main access facing the open roof terrace over the alluvial plain of Gállego river. We propose a central diaphanous space, illuminated overhead: a distributor of light to all the different spaces. The first floor sets back regarding the ground floor, searching for the optimal light for each room, like a flower coming out of its pot and opening up to the sky. This way, the “pot”, understood from the exterior as that mentioned concrete block, contains in its interior a series of patios that provide light to the rooms.
