From the architect. The location corresponds to a no-place located  between the peripheral sites and south access to Pamplona.

Wings

It is composed of 11 containers (wings), arranged in zig-zag, giving the complex a look away from static models, closer to industrial sites.

The construction system of the wings is based on two generative laws:

Economy of means and constructive simplicity.

Use of polyfunctional systems: We have tried that one same constructive system effectively resolves the maximum amount of requirements as possible, adding to a maximal standardization by resolving with minimal variants.

Office Building

The office buildings is composed by an elliptical construction, as a counterpoint to the wings: in front of an horizontal and pointy construction, a curved tall tower appears, searching for the minimum "friction" between the rest of the buildings.
