The Extremadura Regional Council worked with local residents to build Factoría Joven in only 13 months. The whole project was built at a cost of about 1.2 million euros mainly using long-lasting weatherproof polycarbonate panels set on a metal structure. The Internet room is suffused with natural light and features a bright orange floor. To minimize costs and environmental impact the room was furnished using recycled furniture. Because the canopy is basically a large, one-metre-thick “thermal cushion” made from plastic, it serves as a cool and breezy shelter that protects its visitors from the scorching Mediterranean summers.
