CIMA Youth Center

CIMA Youth Center is located in the barrio Jose Felix Ribas, just across the Street from the Palo Verde metro station and next to the recent artistic installation by the artist Jaime Gilli. The project consists of a 4 story building anda plaza in front of it, that is currently used as a de facto parking lot for motorcycles and cars in addiction to being the place where trash is gathered in the area. The building is placed toward one side and serves as the backdrop for the plaza. Its façade is composed of a continuous metallic mesh mostly for security reasons, but it also becomes a canvas that registers the face of a child through a combination of metal squares in different sizes. There are communal commercial centers on the ground floor and the entrance to the Youth Center. The floors above host the library, music hall, computer room and a basketball court on the rooftop.
