A skyscraper that has no limit to its height and is the tallest, not because of its antenna but because of its capacity to evolve. Our proposal is a system of modules, of programs; it is born of a single shape, a single module that forms others that in turn form others too, in the end, form a new mutant unit. A piece that multiplies without changing the architectonic identity of the building, without altering its structure, because the structure is the octagonal module itself.
