From the Architects:

This building is a proposal for a 120-bed student dormitory for the Pontificia Catholic University of Puerto Rico in Ponce, the second largest city of the island and the old capital before San Juan. Part of a larger master plan aiming to attract students from the whole Caribbean region and full fill the current demand of about 500 apartments, the proposal aims to create a new presence within the campus. Articulating a vertical mass with a figural void that encapsulates the main social areas of the program, our proposal aims to induce human interaction among students and visitors in a vertical environment while enhancing unprecedented urban vistas from and to the historic center of the city just beyond the university campus.
