Substation expansion in a wind farm.

The first building convinced them. They have grown and now need more space. We have also grown and learned from our experience. Now let's separate the initial content and return to the solution of two parts that are placed near each other but not touching. Again we provoke a silent conversation between past and present. What is learned is maintained, and pushed to the limit; insisting on the ventilated facade. A single material, corten steel, but this time for five facades. All of them are important when we come from above. Outside, the building floats on the ground, debating between his rotundity and the air that seems to support it.
