The architectural work is characterized by volumetric assemblages and visual discoveries, contrasts and tensions, scale and trompe-l'oeil games. The contrast between black and white produces optical effects that oscillate between reality and abstraction, where two-dimensionality blends with three-dimensionality and the boundary between the extremes fades until it disappears
