From the architect. Over a platform, eight volumes are built, in which the significance of each volume is reinforced by repetition, not equal, but identical. The buildings have the same distance between themselves, repeating their external image, their height and width. The variation happens in their length and thus footprint on the platform.

As abstract objects the volumes are on the border of the platform, releasing a vast area in the centre. In the core of the intervention, the platform slab is cut to illuminate the internal plaza, one level below, from where all the accesses to offices are located. The square promotes the connection of all four surrounding streets. The façades expose a constant module, defined not by a materiality (concrete or stone) but by an immateriality: light alignments that cross from the gallery wall to the ceiling.

I know this building and it's a bad piece of architecture. Very hot, very cold, it has no air circulation, you never know where is the door to the stairs because inside everything is white and all doors are equal. You can say that is nice from the outside but works badly.
