Aq4- OKE, New Library and Cultural Center in Ortuella

OKE is a new library and cultural center in Ortuella, located in the old mining zone of Vizcaya. There are no longer iron sulfate extractions, and the valleys that before were dunes of rusty sand between concrete structures, and the spaces they once occupied now boast absurdist groups of lacquered polygon structures. The past has been erased, nothing remains.

Aq4 has situated the building perpendicular to the main street in Ortuella, and have used the building to connect a significant public plaza with another street, to position the new cultural center perfectly within the urban context.

The formality that defines the building is molded to respond to different topographic levels that define the place.
