The competition for Guadalajara's university cultural center  gave us the possibility to sketch ideas that experiment the experience of a cultural center. From the study of how to improve the acoustics, to the public program that results in a building of this type. The cultural center was part of a master plan exposing the outside of the building to a major people trafficking; therefore the center exposed the possibility of generating an experience of transition between the city and the spectacle and becoming a forum for participation to the esplanade. Inside the building, shape was more energetic, as the energy transmitted in the shows for which it was planned. The acoustics and lighting, led us to experiment with space, so that the two were complementary to convert the audience and the stage in the night’s main stars.
