Community Centre of La Candida
by Adamo Faiden


Argentinian architects Adamo-Faiden have completed a community centre in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Called Community Centre of La Candida, the project consists of a small pavilion built on existing concrete foundations.

It comprises public toilets alongside one multi-purpose room.

Sliding glass doors allow one wall to be opened to the surrounding park.

Photographs are by Cristobal Palma.

    I can see the centre but I struggle to see the community.

    I do find these architectural photographs that are void of any signs of life really quite boring and repetitive ater a while – we do not live in a clean and object less society, therfore why do we continue to represent/design our schemes as if this is the case – please wake up!

    No toilet for disabled people? Nice detailling, only a pity the glass is so reflective on the outside..

  • It’s the return of the butterfly roof! It’s so FIFTIES! Anyway, not a bad bit of architecture, but nothing special either.

    Paul, the sign of life is taking the picture.

    I like it. Something this simple is refreshing. The texture of the side walls is very nice, too…

    There are no disabled people in Argentina – didn’t you get the memo?

    Paul….if it helps you to understand, you could always photoshop a person in, but remember to include a reflection

    Great! It dares to be simple and modest. Modesty is a virtue.

    Looks good, maybe a little simplistic – but sure beats the hell out of the public sector crap we see in the UK.
