Modern Arts House in Portugal

We were asked to design a cultural centre or Modern Arts House in Ovar, Portugal. The programme was focused on a large auditorium near the town library. The respect for the existing adjacent building and the features of the program determined our answer. The form became a sculpture in which holes are dug to make light entries and secondary and primary entrances. A big sculpture is born from this dialogue between the context and the auditorium needs.
