In Huarte in Spain, near the French border, the Vaillo architects & Irigaray + Galar sign this manifold centre of urban waste. It was called the Manifesto Center and it stands tall to express an open mind to the visual impact of industrial buildings. Although the waste collection center is equipped with turbines, scrubbers and filters, both the interior and the exterior were designed to mimic the biological features of an animal.
Being such a noisy building, architects Antonio Vaillo and Juan Luis Irigaray had to cover up the exterior with several layers of wall insulation. Covered with recycled aluminum foil, the center was given a strong color and a modern treatment in order to highlight the environmental nature of the project. Covering 832 m², the Manifesto Center had a construction budget of over 1,000,000 dollars.
