UMBRACLES

The proposal has as its starting point the analysis and study of the existing building, which encompasses the current City Hall, from which it developed with the same formal language and similar language-material of the greenhouse system and open enclosures where power development activities currently taking place in the plaza, and new ones, in order to boost and give cultural and social content of the square.
The protagonist of the current Town Hall element, understood as a horizontal skyscraper, with translucent skin and a marked holes, made the main prism, provide a musical rhythm to the main facade. These parties, subtracted from that prism, and that the building correspond to interior courtyards, are turned towards the square, by a hinge mechanism so that the link and read the front and new elements of the square is clearly realized. The ranges correspond to the square holes in the facade.
The proposal seeks to pass unnoticed the traveler, while maintaining the prominence of the town hall, but by providing areas of shade, reading, etc ... with their shutters.
Project undertaken in collaboration with CODE ESTUDIO.
