What object build as a small bus station? In a corner, between the kindergarten and the school, bordering a park, and at the end of the street the cemetery's gate. What building in a white village that used until a few years ago the beautiful technique of the vault in their houses? Architecture of a single material taken from the earth, shaped for it acquires a resistant capacity that is in the geometry of the form, not in the material, economy. A single material, a single form that covers everything, roof, interior space, exterior image, structure. Architecture in which everything is necessary. Build only with white concrete that rises to become a sheet, structure whose stability is due to the form, and which folds on itself to cover the whole programme. (Excerpt from the memory of the project).
