Marine Research Institute in Vigo

Vigo, Galicia | Finalist in competition 2022

The Campus Científico-Tecnológico do Mar is located in the former ETEA military and naval complex, on the Ría de Vigo. The new complex is formally related to the naval hangars located along the Vigo estuary, seeking a parallelism in the industrial and technological language for this future scientific center. The initiative attracts talent and knowledge, while also being an opportunity for urban regeneration.
