During the event, a time capsule was placed in the building's ground floor containing: a letter signed by the main assistants, a USB with all the details of the new campus and other information about the School, a newspaper of the day, some coins and a face mask. Finally, the attendees toasted the new facilities, which will have more than 11,000 square meters equipped with the best technology.

This spectacular design building will be one of the largest campuses in the network alongside LaSalle College Montréal and LaSalle College Vancouver, and will become LCI Education's major European hub. Its privileged location in 22@, Barcelona's innovation district, will expand and strengthen our link with the business community and institutions of the design and visual arts sector.

The new campus will allow us to provide students with the best learning experiences and a greater number of opportunities, always enhancing collaborative work, cross-disciplinary projects and the exploitation of synergies between the different specialties we offer.
