Technical project

The building and its shape

The project finds its inspiration in “el Gallo de San Pedro” a Mediterranea fish that was used to base the organic and envolvent figure of the building. A simbolic architecture that wants to tribute the marine and universal biology.

Location of the complex within the village

Valldeburg Center is a cultural center where you can find two complementary areas: -Exhibeo: cinematographic exhibition area. -Thematic Mare Nostrum: area dedicated to the Mediterranean, as Interpretation Centre.

Project proposal

This private investment project is presented to Blanes, as a possible location for other cultural groups and a section of architectural moviments, for sociocultural purposes.
The project is considered for Blanes and other towns and regions, looking to get a cultural flow that provides a municipal, regional, continental transit.

The concession is requested from the city council of Blanes, for 40-50 years of the strip of land proportional to the constructed area, located in the Vall d’en Burg.

Once to the concession ended, it would become part of the municipal equipment of Vila de Blanes.


It is a cultural center of 5.200m2 (two floors and two underground) and 20.650 m2 built and designed for its accessibility, comfort, audibility, visibility, called Valldeburg for its location.
