Site axonometric

Project name: The Boundary, the Presence and the Event
Category: Research / Public
Project location: Lanzarote
Stage: Design

The Approach

The project sees the existing square as a potential asset for both the local community and the city, but acknowledges that a successful square should generate possibilities and incentives for people to gather.

The proposal redefines the BOUNDARY of the square with a colonnade, generates a PRESENCE through new programmes in the existing building and facilitates for EVENTS with the introduction of a stepped inclined plane.

The architecture is structured around dualities; local / visitor, outdoor / indoor, entertainment / work, movement / stillness, consuming / creating, structure / organic.
