Among the principal social problems in the settlement of La Morán are insecurity and violence among the youth, and teenage pregnancies, both of which are in some way related to scarce opportunities for personal development and an excess of free time. The project for a Multipurpose hall and basketball court offers the community a common space for recreational and exercise activities that also works to train youth in conflict resolution and coexistence techniques. It is located on the ascent of Los Pinos, along with the edge o the settlement. A tight enclosure of tensile wire allows the structure to remain porous and open to the view while easily watched for security.
