This building, erected in 1990-1992, stands above  a previously constructed underground  garage, whose structural limitations became part of the “material” of the project. Parallel dividers were placed on the perimeter and the pillars of the garage. When it was not possible to follow the pre-existing grid/layout, noticeably different materials were used as if they were joints. The materials highlight the distinction between load-bearing walls, and accessory walls. The roof is constructed of copper layers.
