ha, I like your comment, mets.. indeed the structure seems to mainly serve its own purpose instead of i.e enabling some spatial configuration that could not have been possible without it. I'm kinda torn between loving the fact that this makes the project very playful/"special" and hating it for that solution being inappropriate in its randomness. But it seems they made their clients happy, so that's really a moot point. Love it! For the wrong reasons! xD

'FALSE COMPLEXITY' style. take an ordinary industrial shed, open space without columns. discard any rational structure that could serve it and come up with something looking very COMPLEX! for example welding everything from short beams in random directions. cut off the corners of the front facade so it does not reveal the banality of the project - that it is actually just a long industrial box. and now the most important! create an infinite number of scientifically looking diagrams and pretend that the design process was as complex as if it was part of tha NASA program. and at last but not least get your friends in the spanish magazines like el croquis publish your project every year!

I think this is brilliant. The visualization renderings are superb. The building feels understated, pragmatic, organic and intentional. Great open plan and evenly distributed natural daylight.

casa de musica and this project are not similar at all. period.

Of course they are, the facade in front (like on the first picture) are very similar. If u don't see it, means u are not the best observer...

Patricia · August 03, 2010

It looks good, but it looks a bit like a UN studio project from the 90's.
Nice though.

After seen the exterior, it surprise me to see the use of colors (purples and blues) in the inside. The structure looks different and simple.
