In the foreground a series of rough concrete volumes with ribbed motifs create a maze. The horizontal and rectangular blades seen on top diffuse the light from the skylights encased within each volume. In the background an open air pyramidal construction, directly inspired by Egyptian mastabas, allows for the passage of light on the level below. At the end, the external walls of the terrace include windows that are inspired by industrial sawtooth roofs and also provide light for the level below.
