Dear Jorge Luis Suárez Alfonso,
First, I would like to congratulate you on your beautiful project. The concept is amazing in terms of construction, the local materials used, the environmental treatments used to provide renewable natural energy, and also the solutions used in the roofing and windows to provide good natural lighting. But I have some simple observations, which are that the project lacks more information about the general location, the naming of the internal spaces, and environmental analyzes of the site, so that we can learn more about the project.
Best of luck.
Dear Aiham Alhodidy, thanks for the feedback!
Regla’s Advanced Mediateque (ReAdMe) is proposed as the most important place with means of production and generation of knowledge, a platform for innovation and integration of all types of public in Cuba.
ReAdMe aims to be a pioneer in Cuba in the use of new programs and activities to improve the methodologies in the development of teaching, culture and technology, mainly during the process of transition to the digital age.
Its architectural solution proposes the use of the architectural codes of the Cuban Modern Movement and the use of local construction materials, it adapts to the context and climatic conditions of Cuba and takes advantage of its location and geographical orientation to achieve adequate environmental comfort.
The premises are based on the relationships between interior/exterior and public/private, focused on local and national folklore, in addition to providing solutions to the existing conflicts between the different realities of Cuba nowadays.
The "Lift-Salb" construction system inspired by the José Antonio Echeverría Technological University of Havana is proposed, associated with four vertical volumes that contain stairs, elevators and hydrosanitary cores, which allows both facades and interiors to use prefabricated siporex elements. combined with tropical wood and glass carpentry.
