CHARACTERIZATION OF THE MAIN FRONTS: the work on the front lines consists on build a precise way of relating to the immediate context and to give specific identity to the perimeter of the intervention. The strong characterization of elevations contributes to the construction of an inhabited landscape and provide different opportunities of relationship between internal and external to the housing.
