Jail

The rehabilitation of the old prison of Lugo (a Spanish town) in a cultural centre called “Vello Cárcere” was carried out by the architects Creus & Carrasco. The result treats the smallest detail and returns the building to the city, filling it with life and discovering itself as a dynamic point of activity. This feature materialises the concerns of the architects who thought of the building as a street on which to walk and meet, dialogue and show issues that can be culture without a museum. They define it as an upside-down prison to enter into the compartmentalised, the cell, to perceive the multiple, the collective as a way of explaining the society in which we want to live, and, in the face of the global and indifferent emptiness of the large centres of consumption, to have holes to show time.
