The project for the Victor Jara cultural centre in Soignies, Belgium, combines the requirements of architecture to those of town planning, creating a landscape that brightens up the town centre. The use of materials, such as local stone for the cladding and glass, combined with the design of a shape that follows the site’s allure, enhances the context, promoting the community use of the work.
