Paris-based Spanish designer Jesús Torres García Architects [5] created the Non Program Pavilion in the old town of Salobreña [6], in Granada [7], Spain. Clad in vertical wooden planks on one side, its other facade is glazed beautifully to reflect the sky. The building’s concept is about integration into the landscape inspired by the late architect Oscar Niemeyer’ [8]s approach to building in natural landscapes.

The building interiors are open, fluid, brilliant and flexible and houses a variety of events, including exhibitions and music performances. This beautiful seaside building questions the boundaries between a piece of architecture and its surrounding landscape while reflecting the passage of time. [9]
