Our building works as a bridge over a depressed plaza-lobby-entrance in which 5 bright glowing suns shine with intensity, and where one enters by a gentle sloped ramp going from the public space level in front of the Mexican Pavillion down to level -3m. These suns shining in the lobby, are large skylights crossing the entire building, from the roof to the lobby, illuminating the interior of each floor down to the basement. A glittering brass skin covers The Sun Pavillion.
All vertical circulation such as stairs, elevators and the lift are placed in the building perimeter. It is a functional occupation of the perimeter that works along with the structural solution and allows free floor plans to achieve program freedom, in which the only permanent presences are the huge light columns. We compact the building to have a smaller footprint, to set gardens on the side slopes, and to obtain a pavilion with a character more associated to an object or icon than to a building.
