A cultural and memorial center in Puerto Escondido, Mexico, is nominated for the Golden Trezzini Award as “Best Project of Public Building or Facility”.
Puerto Escondido in Mexico is known worldwide because of its legendary Zicatela beach with surf-friendly waves. Inca Hernandez Arquitectura studio designed a project of a cultural and memorial center to be located here.
The project arises from the need to create a space dedicated to the cultural promotion of the area. It proposes the creation of large-scale educational and cultural spaces to promote the regional heritage. The building is planned as an educational and sociocultural space within a linear park, constituting a Master Plan on the coast. The volume integrates with the regional vegetation through internal gardens that work also as galleries, at the same time a platform is created where cultural and educational activities converge with a view to the ocean. The structure is designed elevated from the ground simulating a mangrove swamp, allowing adaptability with the ocean swell phenomenon. The facade of the building with wooden lattices, allows passing of the sea breeze. This connection with the surroundings is also transmitted on the roof which simulates the waves of the ocean and functions as a skatepark.
