Ciudad del Saber

Floor Area:48,000m2
Location:Panamá, República de Panamá
Competition:2008
Client:Fundación Ciudad del Saber
Design:R. Combaluzier, E. Duarte, W. Ramírez, J. Rivas
New trees arise in the new Panamanian forest, witch their metal foliage shades interior rooms, permeating visuals to the green field. Networks of metal take up traditional Panamanian tissue, forming a microclimatic envelope that controls the sun using its light.
The metal wire that surrounds the buildings allows a long useful life and low maintenance cost. This skin gives both privacy and transparency. The cover provides thermal protection and energy saving.
