Summer is far away and now the sun is soft, yet in Cartagena the Sun is an "element to consider" long, the shadow can be much more desirable. The building of a single carport, basically made of concrete, glass and steel columns, and many kind of flooring, the different colors of the enclosures, getting to be the gateway to the city from the sea and is also a space friendly, open, fluid and hosted with different information areas and exhibition spaces.
The front door is always the first image that takes the visitor when visit the place for the first time. Understand this intervention as a business card, has been one of the challenges of a minimal project, easy to use for multiple purposes, both day and night and fairly easy to maintain, over time. A good project! from Martin Lejarraga.

Paul Strand wrote in his letter to the students of Photography in 1923 "Above all things look around you, your immediate world. If you are alive means something to you, and if you show interest enough for photography and know how to use it, you will want to photograph that meaning." And with that deep interest in the meaning of the "inmediate world", New York, Paul Strand performed in 1921 the film "Manhatta" with the collaboration of the painter Charles Sheeler.

The lack of agreement has not stopped, as a measure of "civilized dialogue", it starts to make the whole structure of the foundation and structure of floors in the rest of the plot. Surely all will end, as in the case of the "nail house", with the demolition of the small "hill". Here we let these...
