Arago interprets the dual and apparently contradictory idea of functional efficiency and the immaterial escape of symbolic representation that the very idea of a tower expresses.

Within the framework of an overall architectural vision, the extremely fine scale and the sculptural aspect of the proposed project are an affirmed intention with regard to the surrounding urban landscape.

The unique, but more complex resulting form gives users a pleasant and dynamic working environment in a place with assertive identity.

The multiple in the unit: the identity of the different aspects of workplaces and activities, and the possible multiplicity of the companies involved there is valued by the diversity of the possibilities of location and distribution offered while preserving the under- standing of the built unit.

From a distance it is a sign, from close-by it is a place.
