The backbone, the distribution of weight or gravity, are matters for which this famous architect is particularly curious, later studying with his sketches, drawings and sculptures, these sculptures are the result of an exhaustive study by the architect, that while working with them imagine future and real solutions to implement and develop architectural projects to be built years later by taking them on a large scale.
