This project is designed as a sum of functional objects united under a common idea. Resulting in a modular space and body, effective and flexible in solving all the necessities.
Required, social, practical, and environmental :
The use of a small variety of materials, and with simple assembly between them, gives the project the virtue of been easy to understand, to plan, and to build. This practical-resolution provides the possibility of replicating the model in other contexts and communities if it’s necessary.
Spatial quality & confort:
The sun light it’s applied as a spatial surrounding (polypropylene roof and walls), controlled by the external net (fog-catcher) that provides shadow and solar protection. These aspects dialogue with the natural ventilation that´s developed through strategic openings in high and low areas; giving the inner space a unique quality and nature.
Education and social organization are the keys to achieve the social sustainability on time; so this space is designed as a flexible container, with various possibilities for ordering in the inner space the different types and amounts of people groups that will gather together in here: learning from each other, reinforce their life in community and their social-cultural identity.
Natural ventilation and recyclable materials in the inner space, dialogue with an external -fog catcher- that surrounds and covers the building with a double environmental purpose:
A.- Collecting water in the most efficient way; by a vertical, easy-shaped and big scale net (raschel mesh 35%).
B.- Solar protection, providing regular light and climate control to the inner spaces.
