Description Change this

Public building part of the project pipeline prioritized by the community for the Sustainable Reconstruction Plan for the city of Constitución after de 2010 earthquake and tsunami.

The project is located on a side of the town square, inaugurating the new civic character of Constitución’s public buildings. The double-height portico is reinstalled as the characteristic space of institutional edifications, serving an environmental, urban and symbolic function. The project includes independent and flexible spaces, in order to give freedom of use to the community. Through simplicity and austerity, the design aims to give timelessness to a building intended to remain.
