The urban context is constituted by volumes of buildings and patios, resulting in an asymmetric and seemingly chaotic plot. The project responds in a harmonic way, without creating contrast; almost disappearing within the surrounding buildings. But not completely though a planned internal square that dialogues with the external square of the Romanilla and so creating an urban space (closed or open), of cultural intention and didactics. This new square forms the attraction of our project.

The purpose is to show the poliedrica culture of LORCA, and the significance and importance of its work in today's cultural world. All that we have now, are images, writings (theatre, poetry, letters, conferences, and a film script), pictures, paintings and music scores, pieces of a puzzle, always incomplete as the figure of Lorca. Each one of these pieces acts like a window, a gate opened up by Lorca and through out we look at a small part of his complex life and works.

The poet's figure solidly lies in the centre of the building. Federico Garcia Lorca Talento poliedrica is represented by a tower of colours and forms that acts as circulation nucleus.
