Signs of identity

The project started with the need to cover a historical claim of youth teams in the old town of Rivas-Vaciamadrid. To this end there is a rectangular plot within a space for a future park to build a new plant envelope and height. From these dimensions volumetric begins a process of participation from which to establish agreed strategies of appropriation and construction of any signs of collective identity from the lexicon of youth culture.

Communication and public processes

From youth participation workshops derive several shared decision:
It defines a programmatic content for the center from the user demand.
Topologically fits this program depending on the possibilities of building volume. From the first moment arises the desire to transfer and dilute the boundaries of the original parallelepiped identitiaria expression of groups of youth.

Identity vs. volume capable

The space is shaped into a catalyst of energy from the participatory process, becoming the main configuration uses bursts of activity that allow the opening and decomposition of the "box" initial. Ample room vaulted interior space structure generating breaks in the skin expressive exterior and colorful topography on the cover.
