From reTHINKING competitions we are happy to announce our new competition:“ Lanzarote Music Factory” It is a competition which pretends to create a collective space, where the domestic space is as important as the urban space.

The project of the Music Factory of Lanzarote was born as a public initiative that seeks to solve the lack of musical spaces and interpretation of the island bearing in mind the analysis extracted from the area.

A priority objective is the connection with the city and the impulse of the urban renewal in Arrecife. A project that will act as an engine of future activities that seek intervention in urban voids and old buildings adapting them to new uses.

OBJECTIVES

The project of the Music Factory of Lanzarote was born as a public initiative that seeks to solve the lack of musical spaces and interpretation of the island bearing in mind the analysis extracted from the area. A priority objective is the connection with the city and the impulse of the urban renewal in Arrecife. A project that will act as an engine of future activities that seek intervention in urban voids and old buildings adapting them to new uses.
Another of the premises that are pursued is the conservation of the hydraulic infrastructure of the island, not only understood as a building rehabilitation but as a renovation, that allows to revive to the buildings that have remained in the forgetfulness adapting them to the new needs. And finally an important factor to take into account, the recognition of Lanzarote as a Biosphere Reserve implies that any initiative is based on respect for the environment, protection of the environment and natural resources and sustainable development.
