Located where two rivers come together, the Confederación Hidrográfica Miño and Sil office building will be protected by the official use the building serves. Designed by VAUMM + Taperstudio, their compact and geometrically absolute design aims to turn the new equipment into a reference able to articulate that piece of city. Its pyramidal shape is due to programmatic, functional and corporation itself requirements. More images and architects’ description after the break. On the river side of the Ourense city (Galicia), its Iceberg´s glass structure geometry talks about the liquid condition of the rivers. The building keeps away from dwellings and opens up onto the landscape. Three terrain folds feature accesses and solve contact between piece and ground. As the building keeps away from dwellings and opens up onto the landscape, the land on which it will deploy the new headquarters of the CH Minho-Sil, is dominated by the strong constraints of topography, from the fast track from the Millennium Bridge and architecture of the urban periphery.
