Bezana Cultural Centre
- by clkarchitects
The new public space
The proposal understands culture as a grouping of knowledge, of intellectual and artistic expressions that characterize a society.
The concept «grouping» serves as a backbone of the Cultural Center through a central plaza.
The typical porticoed architecture, so successful and practical, finishes completing this plaza by means of a perimeter arcade that protects us from rain and sun.
The distribution of the program emphasizes the opening of the plaza towards the street and towards the center of town, as a reflection of the willingness to open and welcome that a public building should represent.
