FUN MAZE IS A BOUNDARY BUILDING HOUSING A MOTOR THERAPIES AND REHABILITATION CENTER FOR CHILDREN WITH MENTAL DISABILITIES. IT IS A LUDIC AND FRIENDLY LABYRINTH PROMOTING AN INCLUSIVE ARCHITECTURE FOR ALL USERS. THE PROJECT CREATES AND INFRASTRUCTURE THAT TRANSFORMS THERAPY SPACES INTO LINEAL PARKS WHERE PARENTS, THERAPISTS, PETS AND CHILDREN CAN RECONCEIVE THE WAY IN WHICH THEIR BODIES CAN RELATE TO AND INTERACT WITH SCALE, LIGHT AND SPACE. IT AIMS TO HUMANIZE THE DOCTOR´S CONSULTATION OFFICE, AND USE IT AS AN EXCUSE TO PROMOTE ALTERNATIVE WAYS OF GATHERING AMONG INHABITANTS. 

WE PROPOSE AS STRUCTURE FOR THE ROOF COVERING THE PROJECTION OF AN ISOSCELES TRIANGLE SHELTERING A SERIES OF VOLUMES IN CURVING GEOMETRIES, WHICH AT THE SAME TIME ENCLOSE CONSULTATION OFFICES, SENSORIAL THERAPY ROOMS, AND COMMON SPACES. SAID COVERING, BUILT ON A STRUCTURE OF METAL TRUSSES AND ROOFED WITH GALVANIZED SHEETING, INCORPORATES A LINEAL PERFORATION  GENERATING A TRANSLUCENT RIDGE. THIS STRIATION OF LIGHT  EVINCES AND PROVIDES PHYSICAL RESPONSE TO EACH OF THE MORE OUTSTANDING AND CONTRASTING CLIMATIC ELEMENTS, IN TROPICAL WEATHER THAT CONSTANTLY AND UNPREDICTABLY ALTERNATING. THE USER WILL ALWAYS BE A SPECTATOR TO THE IMPERIOUS NATURE ENVELOPING THE CITY OF CARACAS AND ITS EDIFICATIONS.
