We design in an exposed and desolate plane, without limits, for this reason we fold the base plane and we generate the “refuge”, we understand that the main feature of dwell is the care, and the essence of building is letting dwell*.

Section 01

We contain the space by the fold of the base plane, without the occurrence of a foreign object, so the dwelling are incubated in their wrinkles, respecting the environment and making that the green be continuous, with their corrugations allowing the preservation of the inhabitant’s intimacy, where these folds are broken, the accesses are generated, in double height and topped by a fragment of sphere like a roof. The “Culata Yovai” is ready and disposed in his “tekoha”. *Martin Heidegger (Building, dwelling, thinking)
