The cover of the scheme this modern architecture building is formed from the existing topography begins to natural ground level and separates and lifts at certain points forming terraced walkways and the land raises decks.
The general strategy is central to the circulation, the forms are nodes that create crosses and turned inward, out and around the deck, decks and interior spaces. The flow of people remains slow and this was considered in the pedestrian system. Expands outward from the site and create links between sporadic access to the mountains and the road networks of the people.
