In this office building, we set out to solve the passive cooling systems that take advantage of natural airflow convection inside the building, focusing on the main facade as it was the most exposed to the sun. This lead to solve the necessary elements for temperature control, so we worked with a double ventilated facade formed by ceramic pieces placed in different rhythms and repetitions; by doing so, we generate a geometric pattern inspired by the Paracas’ tapestries that identify the building.
