The project is shaped by the fundamental act of digging into the earth and carving it, this act creates two spaces that shape the site of the Cultural Centre, that is, a bund formed by the earth scooped out, along three sides of the site, and a courtyard around which the functions of the institution are organized.
The building is sited on the upper level of the site and the lower level is offered as a garden. The bund dissolves the sharp boundary line between the site and the town, and simultaneously creates a protective armature around the site. Gaps in the bund offer multiple entries to the cultural centre and space within. The main vehicular entrance is a large ramp, starting from the south-west corner of the site, and leading down to the courtyard which is sunk 5 mts. below grade.
