As usual in our work was chosen as main material exposed concrete, This was use in all its facades with incorporation of titanium dioxide. This fulfills the dual purpose of whitening the concrete and absorbing part of the ultraviolet radiation. As well as photosynthesis, transforming carbon dioxide into pure oxygen, thanks to sunlight and chlorophyll, photocatalysis is a chemical process that neutralizes toxic compounds.
