Culturalia by ALTOVA in Comitán, Chis, Mexico
Culturalia is a not for profit organisation whose objectives are linked to the exchange of knowledge and expertise in the areas of education and natural resources conservation.
The main objective was to create a multi-purpose space to use as front-desk, waiting room, meeting room, screening room or music room. It was thought as an area that would allow visitors to make a transition from the street or public areas, to the classrooms and offices and which should include the surrounding nature.
At night the structure is lit to resemble a lamp as an evocation of the light of learning, wisdom and teaching.
