  • 6The initial intention was to experiment with cells as a concept that led into organic configurations of the functions, form and structure. Cells are independent but interrelated units that work together for a specific goal, besides they have characteristic shapes for different organisms. They keep an appearance of roundness and smoothness that work as inspiration for this project.The purpose was the development of a building that had the potential to broken the orthogonal layout currently predominant in Downtown Greenville. At the same time to work as an iconic node and a project to reinforce the public space and the rich diversity of activities developed along the year in the outdoors of this city.

    The final configuration of the project was the result of many approximation made on physical and virtual models to understand the geometry, the forces from and to the site and the appropriate intentions. The process was integrated with the development of structural models that also serves to reveal the spatial quality, the materiality and the aesthetic of the building

  • 9The program was divided into three categories: the restaurant, the shop-visitor center, and the production and administrative area. These categories represented the individual units of the building that were linked through the plaza. The composition of these spaces was defined using cells as inspiration as mentioned before. Therefore a radial distribution of the functions, as well as for the structure, round shapes for the envelopes and dynamism observed in the appearance of the building contributed all to contain the essence of the project, the concept.

    Characteristics of this project:

    Reinforce of the public activities in Greenville

    Organic shapes that contrast with the orthogonality of the city

    Public spaces for the enjoyment of the users that become flexible, reconfigurable and dynamic

    Development of a brewery as a place for encounter, interaction and entertainment.

    Incorporation of the idea of a tour experience in the brewery process

    This design was part of the Final Graduation Project to complete the career of Architecture in Costa Rica.The Community Center was the final result after developing an extensive urban research to determine the needs of a degraded urban environment located in San Jose, Costa Rica.These images show the degree of decay in the constructed environment that has also affect the social and cultural dynamic of the zone.

    The urban analysis was based of theories of Kevin Lynch and Santiago Munizaga. There were used maps to represent the information that the zone of study presented.For the proposal there was paid close attention to the context, also environmental factors and the necessities of the community.The intention with the Community Center was to improve the quality of life of the residents and to revitalize a decayed urban area.

    Urban reinstatement

    The project made used of a existing building to develop the proposal. The idea was to make use of the infrastructure as well as the columns, beams, slabs, among other due to their current good quality.The function program was segmented into three categories: public space, social activities and cultural activities. All of these aim to develop the abilities, virtues, principles and strengths of the community in order to improve their quality of life.

    The idea to provide a Community Center to a determined population is to offer the activities, spaces, value and perception of the place to dignify their lives, improve their health, encourage the local economy and worked as a catalyze for other future developments.As architects we have the responsibility to responds in a coherent and sensible way to the necessities of the people in order to provide our knowledge in benefit of other.

    The final proposal was pretty respectful of the social, cultural and constructed context in order to develop a project that really respond to a location and has the potential to revitalize and urban area in decay.This was possible due to the extensive urban analysis and field study to really understand the zone and the population of the place.
