This part is considered as a part of urban context by designing a plaza at the entry and using glass façade which produce maximum transparency and view between the city and the commercial part.

In interior space, the louver frame the view. By moving from one side to other side of administrative unit, the city hides from the view or is seen among the frames depends on observer situation.

Among the gray city, beyond the unfinished cubes
The Building erected on top of a green
Like a Tree,
Screams his silent. . .
