The debate around work spaces from the beginning of the industrial revolution has been a constant topic in architecture. The necessity of accommodate new uses because of new activities has improved new tipologies for the discipline and the city.

The project propose functional strips to the different programme areas in each floor. All the building is a big technological black box that tries to follow the idea of neutrality, elegance and expresiveness.
