Judicial Morgue of Panama

Best Project of Building or Facility by Student

About the project
The building that weeps. This morgue not only examines bodies, but also candles. It is divided into crime labs, autopsy, auditorium and administrative areas. The concept arises from the open central core where the water falls in the rainy season. The areas are distributed parallel to this axis, with a subtle integration of the exterior and lighting in all living spaces. The plastic emerges as the shape of a fragmented diamond. The landscape design is present in the area, taking advantage of the corner to generate a cafeteria and at the other end a mirror of water, generating attraction in an institutional building of this typology.
