The plan is organized around a central courtyard. It functions as an open hall which articulates two sectors of the building: the administrative sector, hosting offices and archives and the public sector, where the auditorium and commissions rooms are located.

The gallery around the central courtyard, a flexible and continuum space, communicates the public area and the auditorium, including the courtyard and the auditorium’s hall.
