Barcelona, a photo a day

United Nations University


The first United Nations University of Southern Europe and 11th in the world will open in Barcelona in 2012. It will be located in the historic Hospital de Sant Pau, an Art-Nouveau set of pavilions that was used as a hospital until two years ago. The UNI-IIAOC Institute will promote research and training in education, migration, youth and the role of media.
And this, my friends,  is part of the rather magnficent entrance. Being a student in there… Nice!

  5. I'd not heard of a United Nations University of Southern Europe (or anywhere else) but what a great idea. And I'd guess this building will be a great setting for such an institution. The facade is remarkable and hopefully will spur on many generations of students to study hard and find some solutions to the problems that bedevil us!
