A bullring is more a monument than a building. The monument is a party. A formal reference point in the city that, being important because of its volume, doesn’t constitute usually a structure reality. This proposal tries to provide with urban value the bullring within itself loose the formal light and the symbolic values that are consubstantial.
For that, the main volume of the bullring and its support’s functions get adapted to the plot’s limits, hiding its basic shape and providing it with a scale and order consistent with the proposal’s objectives. The closings, transparent, are also set out to emphasize the numerous components of the whole, letting suggest in its inner the bullfighting area.
