Entirely built in concrete, the building is based in three fundamental objectives.
The first objective relates to the designation of a «social housing» program. The word «social» is essential, as it indicates the ability of a residential building to create social cohesion and exchange between it residents.
Sociability relies on the idea of recognition. On one hand recognition is, with a topographical point of view, a matter of discovering one’s surroundings, including the perception of those surroundings from one’s apartment.
In this building, even the smallest apartments have a variety of views to the outside. The diversity of the views provides a better understanding of the surrounding environment.
On another hand, recognition also includes acknowledging the other, being a part of the city, and interacting with it. Each resident thereby becomes an essential part of the building itself, and thus of the neighborhood and the city. This is already a form of social recognition.
