UNIVERSITY CAMPUS UTEC
District of Barranco, Lima, Peru
The project was directly commissioned by UTEC (Universidad de Inge- niería & Tecnologia) and completed in 2015 by SHELL Architects under the wings of Grafton Architects.
As the campus is located close to the cliffs leading down to the Pacific Ocean it was also the beginning of conceptualization for the project. Lima is known for its noisy days and rare spaces of intimacy which led the architects to include several little gardens into the structure. The construction itself is built in different layered towers to unify its purpose with its environment.
