Equipment and Facilities
The facilities are the guarantee of the sense of identity and of course the essential implement curriculum. In this sense, the general organization and spatial articulation, the space should be the place of intersection of didactic and pedagogical experiments, expressed in the vertical and horizontal coordination of scientific areas of the curriculum. This unique space will be available in both institutions in time basis allowing extended work in facilities outside of school hours. To point out the existence of spaces "atelier", where students can develop their work as well as being accompanied by teachers. Although these spaces to focus much of the equipment available to architecture students, there are other areas / equipment in working places cycle, essential to develop their activities such as libraries, computer labs, copy shops, book stores and work centers technology.
