Fundación Arquitectura Contemporánea

Competition

 

The concept for the competition for the new headquarters of the Architecture Foundation in Córdoba is a filter between the exterior urban space and the interior public patio, full of gardens and open activities. The idea is to present Architecture as mediator between these two spheres.

 

Through the use of a geometrical continuous strip that divides the program between the upper public exhbitions and the lower offices, the project becomes in itself a prototype for a threshold, negotiating the different urban levels. A ramp crossing the building welcomes citizens to the interior of the urban block.
