Text description provided by the architects. The universes we attend in childhood tend to linger in our memories. It's the time when we interact with architecture in a more free and genuine way. It is when we settle appropriations and intuitively hierarchize values ​​of architecture. We are interested in identifying the assets that are esteemed by all, and design the memories that will be formed.

Each compartment is a separate experience in terms of scale, proportion and identity. The aggregation of all volumes defines its external iconographic value. Inside, a protected interstitial space is defined, infinite by not disclosing its beginning or end, and used as a recreational venue.
