The building is designed as an open and flexible space that encourages public involvement with the urban context. It explores the relationship between space, material and light., and the of -patios-, massive forms, desert hues and local stone, as elements used by local builders to adapt to the climate of the high desert. The layout of the volumes-like stacked prisms- creates a central courtyard that serves to distribute the activities. Meanwhile, the complexity of the interior space is achieved through the intersection of the volumes. The concept of bridge-buildings, seeks an open public building in relation with the city as a domestic scale. The project includes a series of functional criteria closely linked to the activities and to the architectural program of the association. Thus, the main proposal for the building is to create a flexible space that can be transformed to different types of activities.
