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" -.

They deal with playfulness and culturedness, they are implanted in the space to articulate the actions that arise with the museum as the main witness and rest on what was the border between the former Canal Zone and Panama City.
