scs: community center, pumanque
The   Scarcity   and   Creativity   in   Latitude   34s   Studio   designed   and   constructed   a   new   community   centre   for   the   town of   Pumanque   in   Chile,   which   was   devastated   by   the   27   February   2010   earthquake   that   damaged   most   of   the town’s   buildings.   Working   with   Chile   a   Soñar,   a   community   development   group   who   had   been   working   in   the   town since    the    earthquake    and    the    Municipality    of    Pumanque,    SCS    built    a    facility    to    be    used    for    community development,   craft   training   workshops,   and   social   events.   The   project   is   wrapped   in   a   timber   screenwall   which mitigates   the   strong   sun   and   allows   for   cross   ventilation.   There   are   two   main   rooms   for   diverse   activities   separated by   an   outdoor   entrance   lobby   and   a   roof   terrace   shaded   by   an   auxiliary   membrane   canopy.   To   encourage   the   use of   the   terrace   by   children   it   has   been   provided   with   two   outdoor   stair   entrances   and   one   slide   to   descend   to   the groud floor.
