Reutilization of abandoned prison
The project consisted in reutilizing the grounds of a former prison building and transforming it into a community space.
As an integral part of the city’s history and landmark of the neighborhood the buidling will be refurnished as a municipal civic center, school of arts and museum.
To maximize the site space all the surrounding smaller structures are to be demo to allow an esplanade, a sunken amphitheater and green areas. The sloped topography spawned dynamic ways to access and explore the space at different elevations by means of underpasses, stairs and ramps.
