The proposal for the Cultural Center in Guadalajara draws its inspiration from the following definition of culture by Pufendorf: “All the ways in which human beings overcome their original barbarism, and through artifice, become fully human”. Through this definition, this design by K+P Architects focuses on two different states of the building: The primitive state and the social state.
