Manhufe Parking lot

This building supports a big Parking lot that once a year is used as a fair ground.
It functions as a spacial reference in the vast parking field.
The design explores the concept of inside and outside as well as core and shell. That is translated in it’s fractured form which emphasizes in a cromatic way this idea. To bring this inside space to open air makes it a place where people meet, a meeting point, and also a place from where they can Access its public services.
A third building, not fractured, makes the idea stronger and enhances the contrast of the whole.
