The project of plazas and green areas of this cultural complex looked for the integration of the existing vegetation (India laurels and jacarandas) to the new areas of plazas and pathways.The street furniture integrates several benches close to the shadow areas to enjoy the views.The central axis which structures the complex has a pedestrian promenade which goes between the buildings finishing with the Theatre building.This promenade is framed by linear fountains which introduce the presence of water, emphasize the central axis.The rest of the street furniture and new vegetation goes parallel to this axis.The design of the paving is done with two materials of different color following a established square pattern.
