The structure was built between the industrial site and the open countryside.  The project envisaged the improvement of the natural landscape through the area’s reforestation with poplar trees.  Three fan-shaped parallelepiped structures with different dimensions facilitate connections between offices and production areas.  Reinforced concrete, one of the company’s main products, was used to create surfaces and generate aesthetic and tactile experiences.  The work areas have glass walls and the systems are completely integrated.  “The system’s necessary elements have as their objective, not just complete integration, but the reduction to an absolute minimum of the connective elements; the materials used thus reveal their essence and, freed from their supports, become infinite surfaces”.
