The present (the body) sits upon the past (the base), and the future (the top) will do the same, in this vision anything immaterial is also thought as a block by block development. Nevertheless, intangible basis are more complex, more like alive organisms that may have started at a foundational past, but will always find a way to be present and influence the contemporary time.

View

In this way, the intervention may then be an analogy for a historical foundation that refuses to be static at the bottom of a space, so it sprouts towards the contemporary architecture that sat down on it before. The historical architecture of the patio represents the fou...
