Competition for the construction of housing and stores, in the surroundings of the TGV intermodal station in Saragossa, Spain.

The subject of the project develops in the concept of a vertical system, which turns around a fixed central axle. Each flagstone suffers a rotation from 1.5 degrees, in the contrary direction to the hands of the clock, around this exactly axle, resulting in a total twist of 16.5 degrees in the flagstone of the last floor. The object is in this way characterized in its dynamic vertical twist, multiplying the variety of perspective, making each visual moment a distinct one. The result is the alienation of the common rules of the plan of façade, for not only domestication or characterization of the skin, but also to create elements of visual and sensorial provocation.
