THE 3 SUNS

On the one hand, it’s made of Galactica an emblematic and recognizable building at the same time as visible to encourage its use. On the other hand, we seek the integration of the building in his environment to limit the impact of the same.

South orientation allows you to have effective control over weather conditions and at the same time, play with the Sun for Earth travel to its around appears in the Centre in didactic way.

It is thus a semi-buried building organized around three COURTYARDS that exploit regulatory conditions on the Earth, following models of Troglodyte constructions, and from which rooms are released to the landscape by way of satellite, focusing points of interest, seeking in this way make them part of Galactica and vice versa.

The underground part of the building and the disintegration of the peripheral spaces reduces the impact of a building of these characteristics and dimensions.
