Cordoue : Cultural Centre

To celebrate the bicentennial of Argentine independence, the city of Cordoba has decided to build a large cultural center. Glued to Sarmiento Park, the monumental structure is a collaboration of architects Ivan Castaneda, Juan Salassa, Santiago Tissot, Alejandro Cohen, Cristian Nanzer and Inés Saal.

The cultural complex designed as a landscape consists of three sequences: a twisted turn of 102 meters high, a rooftop terrace and a central building that houses an auditorium, exhibition hall, library and archives. To design this organic form concrete, the architects were inspired by the ripple of a fluid. This practicable surface 63 67 meters, springs from the ground and becomes a public square linking the park to the city.


To enter the natural light in the heart of the project, the designers have favored the use of an open structure consisting of columns and installed a courtyard acting mainly glazed skylights.


Besides the desire to create a memorial, the cultural center of Cordoba aims to unite the inhabitants of the city either by its cultural or scenic place of gathering it offers.
