New concept of usage

Due to its form and to its location the Twin Towers building is a local landmark and point of reference within the urban context that surrounds it. In order to reintegrate the shopping galleries into the day-to-day life of those who pass through them, a new concept has been developed: the SMALL is not a shopping mall, but a center of commerce and conviviality.

With this in mind, the proposal suggests closing in the central plaza area, creating an entrance atrium to the interior of the building. In an analogy to the Twin Towers, we propose building two metal-structured towers. These will function as sculptural focal points in the center of the main square, rising 3 levels and serving as a visual reference in the landscape.
