The project solves the necessity of great auditory for the city of Caravaca de la Cruz. A building as place of public encounter, including activities related to the intense cultural and playful activity that take place around the theatre, music… As a result, the program is created as a complement of cultural life, leisure, tourism and even business.

The project is understood from its location in the plot, its relation with the environment and its connection with the outer space, colonizing exterior uses and the topography. The inner uses are reflected in the park, producing an “outer reflection”, in a way that rehearsal rooms, at a certain moment, can produce an outdoors theatre, to enjoy from the outside.
