Juan Carlos Salas is developing a concept of architecture based on the design of pure shapes made of naked materials to model and filter the incoming light, in order to build expressive and suggestive spaces for the human perception. The programmatic innovation is a substantial piece of this philosophy. Indeed, this exposed sincerity should be followed by an efficient service to the changing necessities of users."
