This project tries to investigate and question the spread and impact of fake news and conspiracy theories
by making a space that already
with its title negates any factual
relevance of what happens inside.
The project uses an existing airship
hangar, housing performance spaces, a series of theaters, and meeting rooms as well as not programmed areas, that can be easily transformed. Through the massive volume of the existing structure, the main areas are located within the thickness of the steel structure, allowing a entirely evacuated central space. The visitors are inclined to participate, occupy and even live within this building, as it is based on the word-of-mouth transfer of nonsensical information and beliefs.
