The first project to be developed for the complex of the “Centro Cultural Universitario de Guadalajara” is an auditorium for 20,000 people, which is able to shelter spectacles of any nature due to its vast infrastructure. Located right in the middle of the whole complex it faces the central “plaza” which transforms into an open-air extension of the auditorium.
The project is not only designed to host spectacles, it is meant to be a gallery for several expositions as well, and a convention center with the ability to be subdivided into different areas depending on the size required. A space where the circulations and the structure dialogue to provide its identity.
