Cultura Center for Tanaff's young people
Through the arrangement of court volumes and a fragmented double cover, the project wants to evoke the perceptions of space and local perspectives. In fact, the arrangement of the volumes follows a classical functional logic of the domestic environments where the training takes place according to hierarchies of people and spaces. Integration with the natural and anthropic context is one of the characterizing elements of the project. The village is particularly disadvantaged and full of vegetation, in the skyline appear the sheet metal roofing of the shacks or other buildings. The volumes are covered by a broad coverage that intends to integrate itself into the anthropic context, creating a jagged movement, to capture the historical moment with interpretation of precariousness.
