Description

Two worlds. As in a stratigraphic section, our proposal overlaps both implicit in the program content worlds: the lower world, telluric, cavernous, dramatic, defined by the routes set by the waiting periods and the act of judging; the upper world, luminous, aerial, transparent, associated with the reflection and the impartiality of the judges. The proposal does not propose (only) one way, but a way of relating things built on some cultural references that, ultimately, refer to a particular way of living. The two worlds, each with their unique characters, can relate either hierarchically, organically, or democratically, but without forgetting the drama of light and its symbolic and magical connotations.

However, these worlds may not be continuously separated: public tours end up match with private tours, and thus, judges and civil society found their shared space, in such a way that the architecture that results from all this - built using environmental criteria - will be a true symbol of contemporary pluralism and the transparency of the democracy.
