The project proposes an integrated solution of environmental pre-requisites that join bioclimatic strategies, energy efficiency, and the rationalization of the construction process.
Among the multiple coordinating features of the new Cultural and Event Center, two gained special attention from our team: i) the requirements for a rational project that allowed for multiple uses and could host a multitude of events, and ii) a challenge of how the new center could contribute to the development of the city in a global manner.
The solution for the project was to conceive it with a multidisciplinary focus, surpassing the sphere of architecture, and taking into account different aspects of urban planning, its history, development strategies of local tourism, topography, the visual panoramas of the site, environmental sustainability, and the concept of educational entertainment.
