To define the Centre a series of circular perimeters are traced on the plot, allowing each one to materialize in different forms, height and program: they can be closed buildings, open science gardens, voids or defined spaces in the park. Together they create a strong architectonic ensemble of cylindrical forms, and allow a continuous interaction between the activities inside and outside of the building through the openings in these cylinders. The connecting areas of the building are mainly organized below ground level under a green roof, allowing users of the science park to walk over it and look down into the galleries and gardens. The Centre for Promotion of Science thus becomes a building that extends his radius of influence over the whole plot and activates the larger Science Park.
