Towns and cities are vastly made up of streets and buildings that surround them.
If we abstract those two elements, and we consider them respectively as a surface and some pure volumes and then we recompose them in a 3d space, we can create a new entity that summarizes the idea of a town. The project of the Sevillian Urban Department is developed by following this concept that lays out the complex program of this building in a functional manner.
The vertical closures are inspired by the Sevillian azulejos, the traditional ceramics that cover several houses of the andalusian capital since the arabian domination.
