DESCRIPTION: International competition of the Legislative Assembly of Costa Rica. The project is based on the principle that democracy is horizontal, a foundation that has to be represented through architecture.

The two buildings, which are predominantly horizontal, are joined together to create a space for free height, overcoming the problem of connectivity between two points separated by a street.

The materials used in the project are indigenous, designed to minimize the environmental impact, besides having taken into account all environmental aspects generating a bioclimatic building.

In collaboration with J.S. & V.&A.
