The Spanish firm Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos won first prize in the Arvo Pärt Centre Foundation’s competition for a new cultural center. The privileged location of the project transports us to a world full of strong strimuli like light, filtered through the thin pine trees of a forest, or the dense arbitrary fabrics that only time can achieve. These spaces are transferred inward, where, through a path that crosses courtyards and versatile halls, a series of concentric rings brings us to the heart of the complex. The objective is to create spaces that one can use as much to read a book in silence as to hold multitudinary events in an improvised function hall.

A superposition of layers in between which silence and voids pass through, as in architecture and nature.
