From the architect. The Collage Building is an architectural building of proximity, connected with the urban landscape and the social necessities of Barcelona.

The project works as a vertical city organized by horizontal layers, each one related with the others through perforations and voids. The building groups different facilities: a nursery, a young centre, a library, a community centre and an auditorium.

These five programs need a close relation with the outside but they have to share the same ground floor. This becomes a social place, permeable and active which connects the surrounding city with the building and the public garden in the block interior.

The result is a collage of different parts, a sequential promenade of urban episodes.
