Escuela de Gastronomia PUCP
San Miguel, Lima (2016-2018)
In Process

We were asked to design the new Gastronomy & Hospitality School within the extensive campus’ gardens of Universidad Católica del Peru. We wanted to make the building as compact as possible, taking up the least amount of land, but also concentrating the program for maximum interaction between students. The building is conceived as a gastronomic machine: everything is bluntly exposed with maximum transparency. As well as making it easy to maintain, by spending enough time in the school, students will become fully aware of all the mechanical, electrical and sanitary systems required for the operation. The western sun-protecting façades house a productive orchard that shows the students where and how food is actually grown.
