The Access and Services building at the Madrid City of Justice fits the western circle of the Masterplan. Close to the future commuting transportation center and to the main entrance to the complex, the building must welcome to every citizen coming into the campus. The program required is free from the restrictions thta appear in the rest of the cylinder-like buildings of the Campus. It is a nice opportunity to pack uses and build an heterodox cylinder volume.

The Access and Services building at the Madrid City of Justice fits the western circle of the Masterplan. Close to the future commuting transportation center and to the main entrance to the complex, the building must welcome to every citizen coming into the campus. The program required is free from the restrictions thta appear in the rest of the cylinder-like buildings of the Campus. It is a nice opportunity to pack uses and build an heterodox cylinder volume.

A precise study of the program and the required connections among different uses, both in plan and section, allowsus to explode the primary volume into different size pieces, pieces that remain nevertheless the original cylinder. Hence the possibility of generating a heterogeneous complex through addition and piling, where complexity comes from simple operations.

Three different kinds of access to the building define three main program lots to be organized in plan and section following every concise connection demand, assuring this way its functional character all around a main court, an open lobby that hosts the visitors and workers into the very center of the activity. This open space flows outwards among the pieces, creating a continuous fluid which links every single piece with the complex.

The pieces' geometry, tangent to the outer circle, allow a flexible inner distribution. Every relationship between the different pieces, differing in nature and density may be extended through the covers of the pieces, that become outer floors where activities can be shown. An abstract conception of the whole through the singularity of every lot. Façades remain the same, in order to gain a double perception scale.
