Best Project of Building or Facility by Student

About the project
The project's objective is to bring back to life Argentina's first malting building. We decided to turn it into a music conservatory, while keeping most of the original structure. We wanted the building to be related with it's use, so we decided to implement piano-shaped plan.
The auditorium is half buried, and it's connected with the main building by a ramp, that leeds to the main entrance. This space, is linked with the library by an art exposition hall. The auditorium also has a green roof, and indirect sunlight, creating an interesting atmosphere. The auditorium's roof creates a public space that generates a bar area above the library, creating a bridge between the auditorium and the music school building.
The Piano House interacts with nature, by creating a large public park, that harmonizes with the industrial surroundings.
