Europan 13 Winners Espoo (FI)

Wild Synapse is not a Project, it is an Attitude.

 

With this proposal the architecture office formed by Borja Sallago Zambrano, Alan Cortez de la Concha, and Manuel Pinilla Fernandez has won the First Prize at Europan13 in Espoo, Finland. Last December 4th they received said award in Helsinki at the hands of Europan Finland’s organizers.

The office’s project approaches an architectural program for students and faculty at Aalto University’s campus in Otaniemi, with the particular difficulty of its insertion in woodlands bordering a EU’s protected Natura 2000 site. The jury highlighted the proposal’s sensitivity for minimizing its footprint on site, as well as its expressive construction, and the adaptability it provides to the relation between inhabitants and surrounding nature.
