SAN PEDRO DEL PINATAR AUDITORIUM
Auditorium, Conference and Exhibition Center, and Municipal Music Schools
Location: MSan Pedro del Pinatar (Murcia), Spain
Client: San Pedro del Pinatar City Council
Starting point: Starting from the place, the regulations and the proposed program of needs, the starting ideas of the project arise, trying to respond to:
- the place and scale, where the proposal tries to reduce and minimize the strong scalar impact of the action, both due to the play of volumes, as well as the use of materials and the integration of vegetation in the project.
- multifunctionality of the proposal, seeking to respond to the multiplicity of use and possible situations that arise (congresses, concerts, fairs, exhibitions, ...)
- The integration of outdoor spaces as part of the overall action, to enable outdoor uses that are made possible thanks to the good climate enjoyed by the town.
Implantation: The new auditorium and municipal conference center is located between the town center and the coast, in a privileged situation in front of the port road that leads, crossing the well-known Cotorillo salt flats, to the Torre demolished beach. The proposal is delayed on the plan of the public road, releasing part of the plot in front, valuing the urban scale and the distant look of the building. The liberation of this space allows the creation of a public square linked to the access of the building, at the closest point to the urban nucleus, and the creation of an easily accessible surface car par.
