An architectural object that can be repeated in both the city and the world, a container of activities that can transportase and easily assembled, it generates an image and possesses a strong and friendly relationship with the environment.

The project is structured around three elements, three modules, each with a specific activity.

The vertical module has stairs, bathrooms and storage tank for rainwater,

the horizontal floor module contains the function of energy charge or repair the bikes, and the horizontal module( in the second floor) has the coffee point functions, with wifi for laptop .

The three elements are linked by a plastic object, “energy ribbon”, which supplies power to the building and acts as furniture.
