2006 - international design competition.

The project is a vertical high tower with flying rings as places for different human free time activities.

They are real 64 mt diameter social places for human needs, made up with a light steel structure covered by a plastic composed surface and filled with gas as an old 4hot-air balloon.

The building is something “not definitive”: the light rings can be removed and be taken to other places or cities.
