RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
A research was made about the monuments and their symbolic meaning, as well as the variables of the project location, focusing on the problem of storm water overflow that the sector has. Data pertaining to storm tanks and the water collection systems was reviewed, thus determining the volumes of rain that could be stored, which impacted on the formal and functional project configuration.

CHALLENGE:
The main design challenge was to create a monument that was not only a piece of architectural art that represented cultural identity, but also constituted an environmental, social and economic contribution for the city of Barranquilla. For this reason, a structure was projected that is characterized by its energetic and environmental sustainability, capable of becoming an icon from near and from afar, that would captivate locals and visitors.
