“…wise as the serpents, simple as the doves” (matthew 10:16)

The building is categorical on its implantation, an auxiliar plot nearby the albacete station railways. The proposal gets presence without stridencies, with discretion. The building has to solve a multiuse program, it also has to be a very symbolical landmark. This independent volume integration has allowed its distribution on the plot, in relation with its nearest surroundings; the highest block is situated in front of the railways, and now it’s been a referent from every point of view. the rest of the blocks, lower from the first, establish a relation with the rest of the technical buildings and help to reorder the area.
