Abstract:

The Music training center is a project planned as a cultural facility located in Villavicencio, Colombia, city where exists a deep crisis as throughout its whole territory. This crisis is based principally in two aspects: the dilution of the folklore in its citizens, and the poor network of facilities in the city and the region; which lead me to think that for this reason, it is indispensable to develop a project that not only recovers the cultural identity of the Villavicenses but also gives to the people different life options rooted in their traditions. The proposal will attack the lack of identity of the native people and the dissemination of their customs through an architectural project that responds to the spatial needs and to the serious difficulties that the population is facing. Problems expressed along the investigation that work as reasons for the materialization of this proposal, as the little relationship of the urban facility to the place where it is located; the relationship between corruption and the weak network of buildings and public projects; and how the inactivity of citizens (especially teenagers) in the majority of time, is transformed into the crime that has affected the Colombian nation through the years. I decide to approach to these problems by taking into account some of the studies of different specialists who agree giving answers related to the music as solution for these issues, as for example Robert Zatorre, professor in neurology and neurosurgery which expresses that it is impossible to find social rites or important moments in life without music, since its main function is the social cohesion; what suggests to me to believe that it is indispensable generate consensual relationships in all the social groups of any community in order to achieve a correct harmony in at least the majority of its inhabitants. This link can be achieved by common interests or tastes like for example music, which, according to Juan Rogelio Ramírez Paredes in his thesis of sociology, bases a collective identity reflected in an image, and permanently builds socialization spaces. Although we find great importance to music with different experts in child pedagogy and licensed in this area, that agree that the music helps and facilitates the different learnings and the way of accessing knowledge, and that it must be treated in a way seriously and carefully as it motives the children to social integration and helps them in their psychomotor, cognitive and emotional development. The project, is developed according to the social problems already identified and described above and is proposed architecturally from the recognition of the context in which it is located. The musical training center is located in the Macarena neighborhood, a low-income neighborhood that collides with different education centers, parks of great importance for the city and the football stadium. The shape of the facility is born from the projection of lines of the urban footprint and seeks to be a centripetal element, which picks up the different users of the other facilities and centrifugal through its public space that carries and connects with the aforementioned buildings. Music is the best option to recover the traditions of a community that little to little has lost its customs since it works as a social connector that achieves a collective identity like in the case of the llanera music and creates a fine form of social interaction.
