PROJECT:

Centre for Race Car Design and Manufacture Epsilon Euskadi. A rolling-road wind tunnel to test car models at a 50-60% scale, laboratories, paint cabins, clean rooms, workshops, administration and management offices, master’s classrooms and up to five types of circulation areas are defined within a building of compact design. The use of aerodynamic forms inspired by the vehicles designed by the client is a constant throughout all of the building’s design.

Indoor swimming pool in Vizcaya School

The vaulted shape responds to three requirements: insulation, speed of construction, and use of the roof as a children´s play ground; plus a fourth, perhaps more poetic idea: the cave as a secret place, an ever-present concept in the imaginary world of so many children’s tales. It was built for the most part using prefabricated concrete panels, like a false tunnel, with a vaulted shape. The main structure, the vault, was able to be finished in two weeks.
