MUNICIPAL PUBLIC WORKS BUILDING
FIRST PRIZE OPEN COMPETITION
SELECTED WORK FAD AWARDS 2003
FIRST PRIZE 2ND ARCHITECTURAL BIENNAL OF VALLÈS PUBLIC PROMOTION 2003
The building is designed with two faces: one, dark, closed and rather enigmatic, looking towards the town, the other light-filled, open and deliberately industrial, overlooking the inner work area. The use of galvanized metal sheet and slatted aluminium makes the south-facing façade pulsate. Its extreme length makes it look like a moving train.
The darkness of the urban façade and its lack of openings make the building disappear on the town side. There appears to be nothing left of the building but its shadow.
