A proposal put forward by Jaramillo-Azuero Architects would see a series of old Italian viaducts converted into a state-of-the-art sustainable research center and educational facility.

The proposal was submitted for consideration as part of the Solar Park South design competition. Jaramillo-Azuero Architects based its design off the philosophy that education itself is the most valuable green commodity, and hopes that this consideration will appeal to to the contest's judges.

Implications - Many questions were asked about education before the drawings of the building occurred. Jaramillo-Azuero Architects pondered, "what if education actually were an infinite, indestructible, quantifiable unit like energy." These questions are definitely hard to answer, but they have definitely helped to serve a purpose in designing the environmental learning center.
