Digital Culture Center of Mexico City, Futurama, is a radical architectural intervention on an existing 1960´s building of around 7,000 m2.
The old cinema FUTURAMA becomes, by a change of space and content, an area for today’s culture. The proposal involves the deconstruction of the building’s interior to create a new series of flexible spaces articulated along a new sequence in response to the new design configuration. The exterior is treated as a big box of enormous urban presence, covered in see through galvanized metal panels and glass panels with varying degrees of opacity. The neutral and forcefultreatment of the exterior walls of the large box, along with digital video sequences projected from the inside, turn the building into an urban icon with a unique presence in Mexico City.
