Site: Amorebieta, Basque Country.
Conceptually the building materializes with «bellows skin» and with its rhythmic movements _ accordion playing action. As a consequence of the conditions of the place, it is a lot “in motion”, which must attend to different landmarks: square, street, distant landscape. The main variables that arise are the following, the site is mainly oriented to Txiki Otaegi street and Zelaieta square. The sports center as a building with which to share a dividing wall poses a great integration difficulty due to its current character, compared to a historical building, where integration would occur from the compositional leap.
Plaza access through Txiki Otaegi street. We think that this street is perhaps the key point of this project. We decided to give main access to the School of Music through it. The building retracts on the ground floor to open access to the square. Likewise, the upper floors “waddle”, in a search for visuals to and from the square, so that the building is part of both the square and the street.
