The building is organized around a system composed of double height voids, open patios and terraces through which southern light penetrates into it and help to organized the different levels. Functional flexibility required by the proposed program is obtained by the neat spacial organization of the building, the projected access system and the establishment of a rigorous structural modulation. A peaceful appearance contrasts with interiors treated in a much more dynamic way, understanding that the virtue of these spaces might lay on its ability to let itself be occupied by the countless temporary users that may come to visit the center.
