Inspired in the movement of a conducting baton, the building design is composed of 5 concrete roofs moving up and down in harmony to give shape, space and light to the project. Each roof represents the lines of a pentagram, always straight, constant and parallel. We are looking forward to create a project that lives for the trees as the trees will live as a part of it, we cannot think about a dark and traditional hall when the project is being developed in such a beautiful forest located in Coyoacán, Mexico, a unique place that has to be exploited in a good sense. The volume opens and closes as tree branches with the wind, letting the sun rays pass through , creating a fantasy parade in the middle of the shadow´s mystery.
