This point of meeting is intended to provide a place to sit, meet and chat with the students of the University. It is an area of about four square meters, which is conceived as a small pavilion, providing shelter and shade.

The future architects will design different models of the shelter and then teachers and students of C.I. Donibane will choose one for its construction. This task will be carried out by the students of the 2nd year of the Higher Technical Course in design and Furnishing, supervised by Professor Alfonso Erro.
