The road to knowledge and enlightenment is tough, meandering and full of obstacles. The aim of the project is to create a metaphor of this process, with its zigzag floor plans, as well as the inclined roof, resembling the difficulties one embraces while walking this road.

The building is functionally divided throughout its height. The first floor is more public-oriented, with the airy entrance foyer, the Aula Maxima, café and administration zone. The second floor is the place where students will receive the knowledge – with all the lecture halls, laboratories and seminar rooms. The next two floors are the place where the architectural “magic” happens and turns the ideas into reality in the architecture ateliers. Also, there is a library with a half-level inside.

The metaphor of the enlightenment can be read vertically – the higher you go, the closer to pure architecture itself you become.

Taken away from the Nature, the park is returned to the public by using a green roof, with a big balcony and bench-like stairs where people can enjoy the beautiful views to Vitosha Mountain.

The use of the materials – glass fibre and big glazed windows, creates a unique game of shadows and light. The half-translucent channel glass facade helps the even dispersion of the light, which is so important for the architectural education needs, while the corten-coated roof finishes the architectural look of the building.
