(City and Society – System and Technology)..The technique and technology allowed us to be efficient with the construction of the building; we tried to make this process in a single action, obtaining a better use of resources..Several systems where involved: reinforced concrete structure in sight, metal and wood in the vertical circulation, prefabricated panels, allowing the assembly of the whole system of coverage and adaptation to the environment..”  Extensive glazing, natural light, contextual sensibility..
