On a plot of 7x14 in the Barrio del Niño Jesús and just a few steps from Graciela Iturbide's house, a small tower of only three levels extruded in a literal way, extrudes its measurements in plan to become a solid piece of clay that de-constructs before its own materiality in very thin and almost imperceptible tensions of steel. Inside, three planes of wood, concrete, and marble appear stretched from one side to another creating a pair of voids of multiple heights, probably plagued in the near future by patios with gardens, authorship of its owner. Their interior facades insinuate in an almost imperceptible way the conditions of the adjacencies that surround them with a sieve that lets or does not pass the light and later become shadows. The service area, the circulations and the large bookcase are grouped in a vertical element that is integrated into the container walls to practically disappear and only give body to the volume.
