tion halls was adopted by a Secretariat of the State Government, guaranteeing the maintenance of the contents and their activities. Retail spaces were included in the program of the building to ensure the maintenance of public areas through their rental.
Despite its unique aesthetics, the building reduced costs by making efficient use of national materials such as stone slabs of the region and expanded metal sheets. The use of eco-technologies was an important consideration. Rainwater collection and a double façade, which acts as an element of solar protection and at the same time allows the entry of lighting and natural ventilation, reduce energy consumption.
The project aims to promote values in the Chiapas childhood through didactic activities, and respect for the natural and cultural biodiversity.
