The project calls for a shade shelter from which to watch the traditional horseraces organized occasionally as part of the local rural fiestas. The construction consists of a light, fragile, sinuous, and highly permeable covering, which allows light to filter through even as it provides shade and protection from the rain. The covering rests on a structure of wooden pillars and beams. The design experiments with plywood as a basic construction unit. Owing to its dimensions and greater porosity, plywood allows for better control of the climatic conditions—sunlight, wind, rain—to which the sheets of wood are subjected.
