The Seville architect Guillermo Vázquez Consuegra was responsible for fitting out the Seville CaixaForum cultural and social facility—the third largest in Spain after those in Barcelona and Madrid—with its own language in which the light plays a crucial role through a clever roof light that floods the innermost parts of the building with brightness.
The industrial character of the space, which is located on the Island of La Cartuja, is emphasised through an architecture that allows a view of its interior (beams, concrete, piping system, etc.), in such a way that the building’s structure is organically integrated into the design.
The top part of the construction is protected by an imposing awning over the main entrance. It becomes another source of light thanks to the orifices in its surface.
The project expects to receive 300,000 visitors per year in its two exhibition rooms, auditorium and two polyvalent rooms of 180 square metres each. The centre also has workshops, a bookshop and a cafeteria.
