…Such mediating operation is the plot, through which the singular and diverse events acquire the category of history or narration. The plot gives unity and intelligibility through the summary of the heterogeneous. Nothing can be considered an event if is not susceptible of being integrated in the plot, being integrated in the story…

– Vaihinger, “La voluntad de la ilusión de Nietzche”, 1980

One of the most significant uses is the structure, meaning the architectonic structure, which defines spaces and their relations. Each participating element expresses itself and shows a tectonic relation to each part as well as to the whole of the works.

Functionally, the building presents two room apartments on the first six levels. These apartments are developed according to the proposed theme, evidencing such structural elements. Each repeating beam which goes along the building facade is related to a corbel which structures part of an element/dividing furniture thus setting the different uses in the units.

The extra item in the project is a four room apartment with expansions and its own swimming pool on the top level, relating the different levels with open spaces and natural light which generate a unique atmosphere. Multi-functional furniture goes along the unit connecting the public and private sectors.
