Retrospective in adaptation of sculptures of the design of the faculty of education sciences of the University of Carabobo [ENG/ESP]

Hello everyone! Today I bring you an article dedicated to my house of studies, the University of Carabobo, where I will be talking specifically about the Faculty of Education Sciences and its wonderful architectural design and artistic value. Without further ado, let's get started.

¡Hola a todos! El día de hoy les traigo un artículo dedicado a mi casa de estudios, la Universidad de Carabobo, donde estaré hablando específicamente sobre la Facultad de Ciencias de la Educación y su maravilloso diseño arquitectónico y valor artístico. Sin más que decir, comencemos con ello.

The FaCE was founded in 1962 and is part of one of the seven faculties of the University of Carabobo. It was formerly located at the entrance of the university campus and used to be called the School of Education. The building was small and solid but with little capacity to house many students. So it was moved to the northern part of the campus and the construction of a new building was started.

La FaCE fue fundada en 1962 y forma parte de una de las siete facultades de la Universidad de Carabobo. Anteriormente se encontraba ubicada en la entrada del campus de la universidad y solía llamarse Escuela de Educación. El edificio era pequeño y sólido pero con poca capacidad para albergar muchos estudiantes. Por lo que se trasladó a la zona norte del campus y se inició la construcción de un nuevo edificio.

What you see on the screen is the new FaCE. Its structure and style is modern. It is made of concrete, covered with bricks, iron and cement. Windows and doors of a medium size, made of iron and glass. It consists of four levels; first floor, second floor, second floor and third floor. The disposition in which the rooms, apartments and offices are located allows an appropriate traffic fluctuation. As you may notice, this is due to its large corridors, stairways and open spaces that facilitate the passage of students, teachers and faculty authorities. It also has an elevator that contrasts with the concrete of the entire building, being made entirely of glass and iron, giving modernity to the place.

Lo que ven en pantalla es la nueva FaCE. Su estructura y estilo es moderno. Esta hecho de hormigón, recubierto de ladrillos, hierro y cemento. Ventanas y puertas de un tamaño mediano, hechos de hierro y vidrio. Se compone de cuatro niveles; planta baja, primer piso, segundo piso y tercer piso. La disposición en la que se encuentran ubicados los salones, departamentos y oficinas permite una fluctuación de tránsito apropiada. Por lo que podrán notar, esto se debe a sus grandes pasillos, escaleras y espacios abiertos que facilitan el paso de estudiantes, docentes y autoridades de la facultad. También posee un ascensor que contrasta con el hormigón de todo el edificio, al estar totalmente hecho de vidrio y hierro, otorgando modernidad al lugar.

Interestingly, the building also seems to take on a characteristic of the Venezuelan colonial style, and I am referring of course to its large central courtyard. This space allows an entrance of light and ventilation, as well as a large garden. In addition to being a recreational space for its users. Being in the center, it is connected to the whole building and is a perfect location to admire some of the artwork that adorns the building. Such as those of Carlos Rojas, a renowned sculptor from Valencia, who donated part of his work, the Harlequins series, to the faculty. You can see below his work where you can observe several human figures that are kept suspended in the air thanks to strong iron fences, with a great colorful and histrionic expressions.

Es interesante que además, el edificio parece tomar una característica del estilo colonial venezolano y me refiero por supuesto a su gran patio central. Este espacio permite una entrada de luz y ventilación, así como un gran jardín. Además de ser un espacio de recreación para sus usuarios. Al estar en el centro, no deja de estar conectada con todo el edificio y es una ubicación perfecta para admirar algunos de los trabajos artísticos que adornan el edificio. Tales como los de Carlos Rojas, reconocido escultor de Valencia, que donó parte de sus obras, la serie de Arlequines, a la facultad. Podrán ver a continuación su trabajo donde se observan varias figuras humanas que se mantienen suspendidas en el aire gracias a fuertes vallas de hierro, con un gran colorido y expresiones histriónicas.

The FaCE also responds to a sense and duty with art and culture, so an Open Air Museum was inaugurated, where several plastic artists donated their works. As I mentioned above with Carlos Rojas and some other artists such as Vladimir Zabaleta and Jesús Salazar (son of Braulio Salazar). This museum is in the hands of the Braulio Salazar Art Gallery. Some works have been taken by the Gallery for restoration, so you can see that some of them are in a critical state. The recovery of this space is expected.

La FaCE también responde a un sentido y deber con el arte y la cultura, por lo que se inauguró un Museo al Aire Libre, dónde varios artistas plásticos hicieron donación de sus obras. Tal y como mencione arriba con Carlos Rojas y algunos otros artistas como Vladimir Zabaleta y Jesús Salazar (hijo de Braulio Salazar). Este museo está en manos de la Galería de Arte Braulio Salazar. Algunas obras han sido tomadas por la Galería para su restauración por lo que podrán observar que algunas se encuentran en un estado crítico. Se espera la recuperación de este espacio.

In the vicinity of the FaCE there is an amphitheater where lectures, graduations, degree presentations, thesis defenses, ceremonies and academic events are held. The shape of this is almost that of a closed acoustic shell. It is made of the same materials as the FaCE, concrete, iron and brick. The internal space can accommodate about 700 people. It is part of the charm of the campus, thanks to its aesthetics and functionality.

En las inmediaciones de la FaCE existe un anfiteatro dónde se realizan ponencias, graduaciones, presentaciones de grado, defensas de tesis, ceremonias y actos académicos. La forma de este es casi del de una concha acústica cerrada. Hecha con materiales iguales al de la FaCE, hormigón, hierro y ladrillo. El espacio interno puede albergar alrededor de unas 700 personas. Forma parte del encanto del campus, gracias a su estética y funcionabilidad.

To conclude I must say that the Faculty of Legal and Political Sciences, which is adjacent to the FaCE, also has the same design. This is because these buildings were part of a university campus recovery project. The project was intended to create one of the best university campuses in Venezuela but unfortunately fell through for various reasons. It included the realization of an Aula Magna of great potential. However, the FaCE is still an imposing and strong building, which contrasts with its surroundings full of vegetation, mountains and fauna. I am very proud to belong to this faculty. I can only say thank you for stopping by and admiring this great architectural work.

Para concluir debo decir que la Facultad de Ciencias Jurídicas y Políticas, que se encuentra adyacente a la FaCE, también posee el mismo diseño. Esto debido a que estos edificios estaban dentro de un proyecto de recuperación del campus universitario. El proyecto tenía como meta crear uno de los mejores campus universitarios de Venezuela pero lamentablemente cayó por diversos motivos. El mismo incluía la realización de un Aula Magna de gran potencial. Sin embargo, la FaCE sigue siendo un edificio imponente y fuerte, que contrasta con sus alrededores llenos de mucho vegetación, montañas y fauna. Por lo que es para mí un orgullo pertenecer a dicha facultad. No me queda más que decir que gracias por pasar por aquí y admirar este gran trabajo arquitectónico.

Hello dear friend @carminasalazarte good morning
What an imposing structure, I like how they have built the building, leaving a huge entrance of light inside and the large corridors so that you can move comfortably inside. Art exposed to the outside is the icing on the cake
Thank you very much for letting us know about your home.
Have a nice day

It is indeed a majestic and beautiful concrete building this Faculty of Education Sciences, dear @carminasalazarte! Besides, these open spaces in the constructions of Venezuelan architecture do not cease to amaze me.😊
I find Carlos Rojas' Harlequins series a rather strange solution for decorating a university, but the other abstract installations you show are very interesting.
Thank you for your contribution to our community!

Thank you very much for your comment! The faculty is beautiful and takes many influences from various architectural styles. I'm glad you liked this approach.

With respect to Carlos, I think that decision is also due to the fact that it was a project that was intended to decorate the entire municipality of Naguanagua, where the faculty is located. Although you are right, it is a bit strange but ultimately fascinating. A big hug.
