Tala Civic Center
Sora SEED 2019 - Competition Entry
The design aims to create a social space that serves as a junction of the different programs of a civic center. The administrative, social, health and educational function are all integrated into a single building. The project’s goal is to break boundaries and build connections.
The social hall acts as an extension of the site, while providing a space for the community to interact. It has a façade that serves as a bio-climactic screen providing protection from the sun and rain, while allowing the passage of breeze. The hall is covered by a green roof that also functions as an urban farming for the community. Courtyards provide visual and spatial connections between the social hall and green roof.
