The winning project has a major objective: to connect all the buildings on the campus, through a subtle adjustment of levels, and to create a new ground level with a large interior square. This square, or agora, is an open space that provides visual continuity with the university grounds.

The project also includes two new spaces dedicated to teaching, a university restaurant, a cafeteria and an impressive green terrace.

The jury was composed of Mariano Clusellas (architect and Professor at UTDT), Juan José Cruces (Rector of UTDT), Marcelo Faiden (architect and Dean of the School of Architecture and Urban Studies at UTDT), Bernardo Kosacoff (President of the UTDT Board of Directors), Karina Román (member of the UTDT Board of Directors) and Ernesto Schargrodsky (Full Professor and member of the UTDT Board of Directors).
