Almería’s La Rambla leisure and shopping centre, whose pure volumes are framed by large roofs, features contemporary, bright, clear design. Its guiding principle was the will to contain the program’s complexity inside a building which, in addition to its commercial use, would culturally enrich the city and its surroundings. A rigorous environmental impact study has shaped the centre, not only architecturally (materials, building systems, orientations, etc) but also in energy saving measures and low environmental impact.
