Section A

The building is an adobe pavilion of two rooms with the same proportion, one serving as a dining room and the other as a kitchen. The floor is made of concrete connected to the stone foundation and the roof is a lattice of wooden beams that has been arranged to receive the rescued tiles from the building that collapsed with the earthquake. It is a building that finds its main virtues in the use of local materials and labor, a local building that leans towards the vernacular and the use of the available resources.
