CULTURAL AND BUSINESS
The building is designated to house small and medium technological companies. The volumes are configured into pieces within a spiral external peel. The exterior is rapped by a continuous concrete form that exposes the translucent interior of the building where the boxes of the companies are hung. It is a similar effect as the one of peeling of an orange, denser in the center, and less dense as we stand back from it. The effect of spiral allows us to see the internal spaces of the building, turning it more permeable to the light, and to the surroundings.
The access to the building is in the direction of the opaque element that unifies the block from top to bottom and we can enter at the level of the street. The block is set on pieces allowing us to cross from the external space between the parking lot and the future park to south, permitting people to view the interior of the building. The main entrance of the building is located in the middle of the structure distinguished with a facade in a larger dimension. The boxes for business technology services work as modular elements extended to the needs of each company. They are tied to structural elements, and suspended on the square, giving the building different degrees of transparency and light on the central space. Level 3 may become an extension of space for that kind of business. The areas to the industrial technology company, located in the lower level, are also modular and with flexible use, allowing them to get together or separate the spaces as the requirements.
