On a 7×14 plot in the Barrio del Niño Jesús and a few steps from the house of Graciela Iturbide, a small tower of only three levels literally extruded into a solid piece of clay that reconstructs very fine and almost imperceptible steel tensions. Inside, three planes of wood, concrete and marble appear stretched from one side to the other creating a pair of voids of multiple heights, probably plagued in the near future by courtyards with gardens.

Their interior facades insinuate almost imperceptibly the conditions of the adjacencies that surround them with a sieve that modulates the passage of light.
A work searching to be both mass and vacuum, an ethereal volume that disappears with light and shadow; which ceases to be.
