A New Urban Design for Andorra
St. Julia de Loria, Andorra
The Program requirements asked for a new 32,000 sq ft building for the Univeritat d’Andorra, a new parking structure and 79,000 sq ft of mixed residential, retail and office space, promised by the previous scheme.
Our proposal included the restoration of three existing 19th century buildings formerly slated for demolition. In addition, we proposed a gateway building, the “Propylea,” to maintain the spatial integrity of the historic Plaça Major while providing pedestrian access to a new square, the Plaça Univeritat, that serves as the focus of the design.
