proposing a neutral white volume for the reinosa cultural centre in spain, oporto-based architecture studio fala atelier has designed ‘lorem ipsum’ as a sequence of blank canvases. the square platform seeks to detach itself from the city’s past, redefining the surrounding square and opening its edges on all sides to establish a sense of flow through to the interior. the building itself contains 49 equal-sized rooms with various activities juxtaposed next to one another. the spaces within the uniform structure are identical and with no fixed limits – side by side one may find; exhibition areas, a nursery, a co-working zone or painting classes. the life of the building is a mirror of the city it inhabits, it is activated by the people, hoping to fulfill their many and different needs.
