The competition design of the School of Medicine and Surgery in Caserta (currently under construction) hosts areas for re-search, teaching and assistance, along with various urban functions brought into the university complex. These will be developed by project financing and allow for close links with the surrounding area. A system of orthogonal paths links the different types of spaces, creating a continuous weave on three levels arranged around patios. Pitched roofs and verti-cal gardens protecting the facades characterize the areas for assistance. The primary gallery for the students coincides with the site of the Roman “centuriatio”, and the complex is linked with the park by shelters designed as stepped platforms for sunbathing. The “wall of water” and the configuration of the trees are strong elements in the re-design of the landscape and protect from “micro-pollution.”
