The building Universidad de los Andes Sede Caribe is located in Serena del Mar, an urban project in the city of Cartagena, Colombia, 12 Km from its historic center. With 3.000 m2, it is the first campus of Universidad de los Andes outside Bogotá.
Brandon Haw Architecture (BHA) was the company that crafted the design of this new building of Universidad de los Andes (14.097m2 in total), incorporating internal and external spaces to create collaborative working zones that evoke the Caribbean landscape.
In the bio-climatic design, thought to fit the local conditions, concrete wings stand out. They are placed according to the orientation and the pattern of the sun's rays during the year controlling the manner in which shadow is cast while maintaining the view of the building's exterior scenery.
