Scope and content:
This project series documents the Complexo Desportivo "Ribera - Serrallo" in Cornellà de Llobregat near Barcelona, Spain. While the records were held in the office’s archives this project was assigned the number 3/00. The office assigned the date 2000 for this project.

The sports complex consisted of a multipurpose pavilion, an aquatic centre and gymnasiums. The building also included a foyer, restaurant, terrace, and a VIP area. Of particular interest was the small opening in the building that linked the exterior and interior pool, as well as the 62 circular pool skylights. The project was built and Siza was awarded the Secil prize in 2006 for this building. In 2010, a new customer request called for the creation of a game room and toy library. This is documented in the project series through a study model (see model ARCH281281).

Documenting this project are sketches, studies, plans, working drawings, technical drawings and details. Textual materials include correspondence and project documentation. Photographic materials document construction work and the built project.
