Universitat Pompeu Fabra: Architecture Pictures

Posted on Jan 20, 2023

Barcelona’s Universitat Pompeu Fabra has some truly amazing architecture at its Campus de la Ciutudella. From what I understand, I mostly discovered the Law Department and some Library building. All pictures are taken with my Google Pixel 4a 5G in Normal mode.

Two buildings with a inner floor that has a large roof. The left building has a wooden design, the right one has a large glass front in which you can see some lecture halls.
Three floors of lecture halls. The highest floor is dimmed, the middle floor has a cinema-style seating, the lowest floor looks like a cafeteria.

The next building has a beautiful courtyard under which the library seems to be.

A modern building with balconies and a two-layered courtyard which are connected through a staircase. In the front is a tree, and you can see the library and some vending machines in the hole. From one of the balconies hangs a demonstration poster.

I love how the old structures and modern buildings are combined:

Hallway on the lower floor with some bendy stone pillars that flow into a white ceiling.
A marble staircase with a central metal railing. In the far back, some bricks from the outer wall are shown.

Oh, and here’s another image from the adjacent metro station:

A metro station from above. The station has a blue-white design. One train is standing in the station and passengers are departing from it, one train is just arriving and has a large number of waiting passengers. The picture is taken in a very wide-angle ratio.
