Description

The project consists of a multipurpose building conceived in order to give the city a new sports and civic centre, serving as well as a dancing and a music hall.

The project takes advantage of the conditions and topography of the location. The simple central volume is located parallel to a creek bed, and the large leveled area in front of it becomes both a public square and entrance to the building.

The building, conceived as a rectangle, is made up of several elements: the main body and two volumes of the same size located one on each end. The structure of the main body is mainly made of steel, and it consists of steel trusses pillars, with large spans. The structure of the two volumes is made of reinforced concrete.
