DescriptionThe project consists of a single urban scale structure containing an autonomous "city of government". The roof acts simultaneously as an icon of the project and climatic moderator. The main space houses the plenary hall and functions accessible to the public. The government citadel is itself organized as a small city in which terraced gardens and squares provide a strong urban character. The bioclimatic strategies are as follows: thermal mass, geothermal, solar shading, use of natural lighting, cross ventilation, radiant floor cooling, photovoltaic technology.
