Text description provided by the architects. The Plinio Marcos School of Art and Popular Culture houses the activities of the Art Institute in Dike, an NGO active since 2002 in the Town Dyke Gilda Santos in the Northwest Zone, an area with about 22 000 inhabitants living in precarious conditions, with most houses on stilts on the edge of the swamp.

The project is a reference to this area of ​​the city, making it an important cultural center for the promotion of shows, concerts, events, workshops, and technical training, fostering popular culture, creativity, entrepreneurship, and community sustainability.
