This project is the answer to the site. one existing building determines a new podium, with public approach and a new and particular way of see the city. Underneath, the matter is excavated and gives place to a meaningful and beautiful space. floating above are the necessary programmatic public areas.
Confronting this podium, another one is built, but private, responding with the same strategy. Connecting the both is a particular space, circular and confronting the existing rock, illuminated with zenithal light. Two concrete elements, heavy to the aggressive exterior, and light to the interior reality.
