Project awarded first prize in the national ideas contest where Jose Antonio Corrales was judge chair. The porticoed spaces of the XVIII century were kept as a symbol and memory of Lorca’s history. Bridging both sides of the street a new building was built. Administrative, representative and institutional spaces blended as a continuous through voids, stairs and ramps. The building complex built is a concatenation of perspectives and changing routes. The complex fluid and transparent container reflects participative and democratic citizens organization.
