The fishermen’s union in the locality of Putú at lunchtime usually takes shelter under ramadas. Once the working day is over, the shelter is moved, like a campsite, to the next fishing site. It was from this itinerant activity that the idea emerged of a construction that would resemble these precarious structures, reflecting the close ties they have with the inhabitants of the Central Valley. Notions of tensegrity and arte povera are also incorporated, helping to integrate the structure delicately into the territory and highlighting the fragile relationship of human beings with their surroundings.
