The site used to be remote – a land of farms and desolate ground – is the location of the Campolide Campus of the Universidade Nova de Lisboa. With the former Jesuit School, it creates a public square of imposing scale and provides a three-dimensional expression to the entrapped territory. The program is divided into two distinct zones. Administrative offices are located in a slender tower overlooking Monsanto Park. Large scale foyers, meeting rooms and auditoriums are set at the base of the building, housed within a plinth that marks the difference in level between the public square and the school plateau. The rising tower has the same height of the three-floor School building. Its façades are clad in white stone with an abstract layout of fenestration concealing the many levels of the building. The public square and grand steps leading up to it are clad in the same stone. These more symbolic and formal spaces are carved and sculpted within the plinth.
