Formally, the new building is delimited by three virtual axes: The North-South axis, the projection of the proposal with La Mitad del Mundo City and the combination of these axes in 47 degrees, resulting from the sum or displacement of maximum declination north (23.5 degrees) and maximum declination south (23.5 degrees) of the sun in relation to the equator. The structure results in a positive, proactive and strong iconic image system. This scheme is also the largest armor flown (cantilever) in South America with 56 mts. without support, modeling technology, drive and creativity.
