Tell us your story

To design this tower, we had to think out of the borders of the norms, regulation or standard of certification, against the ideology of doubt or skepticism, in a transdisciplinary approach between the users and every different stakeholder of the project. In this context, the engineer has to become an explorer much more than a calculator. That is the way we have to adopt to go beyond the limits and create an effective Positive Energy building at standard cost of construction.
