Its completion is scheduled for fall of 2014 as Moneo pointed Moneo journalists, before presenting this project, which will house the art collection of María Josefa Huarte, donated to the University of Navarra and that has been the origen for the construction of this Center Art in the campus.

Moneo has explained that seeing the work “one can understand the mode is integrated into the campus and the relationship that will have with Pamplona”.A building, added, “demonstrating how architecture can coexist between city and nature”.

For the architect, author of creations such as the Museo Thyssen Bornemisza, the extension Museo del Prado, the Kursaal of San Sebastián, yhe Modern Museet (Estocolmo) or the Museum Fine Arts of Houston (Texas), the choice of the site was “successful” and the work “think that it is well executed”, complete the campus and “recognizes the desire to University by connect with the city”.

Sensitivity between architecture and nature

To its author, the characteristic feature of this work “is being a sensitive building to the landscape and in this case a very close to the city landscape”.
