They have arrived settling on earth, as if they were born from it. Now, in this collective situation, they play and accommodate. The stone boxes offer a facade to the sky and create spaces for the user and their movements - the dynamics of “the sustained” -, the metal boxes, floating, have left their vocation of industrial load and now have the privilege of accommodating the uses of exhibition hall one, and educational workshop, the other one; in -the dynamics of "the content" -.
