Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos 

A group of nine volumes, conceived as large ‘ceramic vases’ that are subtly separated to let sunlight into the building, accommodate exhibition spaces, auditoriums, and theaters. A roof garden offering panoramic views crowns the building.

Stemming from a simple additive process, the architectural concept of the project admits multiple variations of a limited number of elements, which generate a complex space out of a basic combinatorial system.
