m@pmalgrat: mapping the territory

We understand the site as a representation of the Malgrat Plan and its territorial traces. The boundary of the building represents the main infrastructures and the principal streets while the rest of the site features the costal mountains and the sea.

We scale those traces to a measure that coincides with the surface of the program. Inserting these geographical patterns gives a new identity. This mapping mechanism allows us to understand the building as a landscape, as a new image of the city of Malgrat, frozen in geological layers.

The ambiguity of the unity-duality of the building has a repercussion on the formal process that exists as a feedback between the two pieces. The roof promenade is generated by the geometry of the superposed volume, moved with the parking grid measure. Another similar mechanism generates the folding and holing of the square, that links all the layers of the project. The natural traces (mountains and sea) are completing the rest of the square. Smooth folds and dunes are protecting and half-covering the bus parking and the lower level.

The ramp concept is converted into the essence of the building, a sequential trip that resolves the program in three blocks and two roof slabs made of cement. We think it is important to amplify the communication and the flow in a multicultural furnishings. The cement roof links different spaces and activities. The project represents different flowing spaces over a continuous surface.
