The objective of the proposed intervention is to fulfill what the Venice Charter of 1964 states in its introduction: “humanity, recognizing itself as jointly responsible for the conservation of the common monumental Heritage, must aspire to transmit it with all the richness of its authenticity.”

In this entire project that we present for the construction of a new building with a stage space, we seek more than just building a contemporary piece, we intend to value the great heritage of Carcabuey according to the criteria regarding the conservation of historical-artistic heritage. Fidelity to the origin will be essential, with the following postulates: respect for time, valuation of contributions, cancellation of dissonances and coherent constructive contribution, harmonious in our time, exercised with rationality, that expands and underlines our heritage.

For the construction of this project, the same materials that were used in the traditional construction that has shaped the municipality of Carcabuey throughout history will be used, to guarantee its compatibility and durability. Noble, natural materials: stone, lime mortars in their various varieties, etc. to safeguard the authenticity of its materiality, to not distort the qualities of the building and its harmony, to seek maximum durability and avoid irreversible damage to heritage environments.
