Description: Architecture is always the first and clearest manifestation of administrative intent and, therefore, the means of renewal and improvement of public spaces, especially in a historical context as presented in this project which will concentrate all public functions.
Our proposal is born with this basic concept, and want to appear as a friendly intervention of pre-existing buildings but also innovative in its space, promoting the full and gaps are created.
Our work has followed the concept of superposition of several layers: the new spaces and uses are modeled on an existing grid of columns and covered Shed.
The result of this superposition is a renewal of historical industrial complex where the tires do not always correspond to the lower volumes and covered portico creating spaces where new functions let you read the web of existing pillars and spirit of the original building.
