National Institute Of Physical Education

National Institute of Physical Education of Catalonia, INEFC, is a university building meant for students applying for the Higher Education Bachelor Degree in Sports, located in the Olympic Ring, near the mountain of Montjuic. Designed for the 1992 Summer Olympics by the internationally renowned Catalan architect Ricardo Bofill, was the first building constructed entirely of precast concrete, and consists of more than 1700 blocks of this material. The neoclassical building is a homage to the Greek civilization, the birthplace of the Olympic sports.

Its construction is entirely carried out by using the formwork system of precast reinforced concrete. It is organized around two major cloisters of 48 x 48 meters and the central nave acts as a gymnasium with capacity of 400 people.

The building has over 30,000 square meters and its training areas are intended to promote health, fitness and physical shape. It has several zones designed for such purposes, indoor and outdoor sport courts and a library with over 26,000 titles. It was inaugurated in 1991.
