Abstract

Space between buildings has been a traditional drawing desk for urban designers. That design is nurtured by collaborative insights from several areas as arquitecture, engineering, environmental psychology, and others (Steele, Luka y Guastavino, 2012). Space and its dialectics cannot be constrained to any particular discipline but nourished with different views, not always harmonious but sometimes divergent.
This article elaborates on the practical experience developed by an interdisciplinary team on campus design at Universidad de Costa Rica. More than a discussion on traditional campus design, we analyse our common goal of recognizing the right to space for people studying, working, and teaching at Universidad de Costa Rica (Leandro, 2009; Sorkin, 1992). We discuss on the dialectics that gave way to the concept of HEALTHY UCR and lessons learned from the rich opportunity of thinking the space from different optics.
