New Headquarters of the Territorial Support Center of the Geological Institute of Catalonia in Lleida, Spain by Oikosvia Arquitectura s.c.c.l

The facility is conceived as an abstraction of an “iron monolith”, compact and of pure shape, which represents in one of its sides a “balma” (in catalan, a type of small cave in the base of a rocky formation) which guides us to the inside.

It is formed by means of an exterior skin, the façade, formed by Weathering Steel plates perforated with little holes of different diameter. The plates reproduce a monochrome version of the geological map of the region.
