The contents of the exhibition featured the resources that the architect uses during his creative work, a very complex process that begins with the intellectual construction of the first ideas, which are conceived and matured in the brain, until its realization and real construction later, using different tools. The intellectual construction is very complex and in it many variables determined by knowledge and sensitivity intervene, in an almost oceanic dimension by extension and depth. The exhibition includes a selection of works and architecture projects carried out between 1977 and 2017.
