Fernando Menis designs cultural institution embedded in landscape
Located in a privileged position, above the beaches of South Fuerteventura, the Congress Hall and Auditorium building by Fernando Menis will emerge through the excavation and the mimesis of the site. Textures, colours and finishes answer to this aim, creating a piece which recalls a broken rock, coming away from earth.
The 1st Prize design by the Spanish architect is a sponge building, able to adapt to different situations and events, flexible, equipped with well balanced acoustics also prepared for different types of events, designed for low energetical and maintaining costs.
Won in June of last year the project is set for completion by 2012.
