The Andalusian Pavilion should be a calm place in contrast to the hurried tour through the Exhibition area. The building should make compatible the long-lasting visit, resting time and knowledge exchange with the short or programmed visit.
As requested in the competition brief, the pavilion should be able to gather memory and utopia, that is, the employment of current construction techniques in well-known spaces: steel, concrete, glass, advanced technology and podiums, L-shaped accesses, sandy courtyards, the natural light filtered by awnings, walls in veiled colours, wrapping fresh and shadowed interiors. And high openings that will allow views over the new artificial lake of the Exhibition and the city and its river.
