The design concept develops the idea of DNA. Just as a DNA wrapping on itself in order to create “living” organisms, living units creates building organisms. DNA concept is not only a “formal” geometric-aggregative solution, but it also involves the idea of timing, variability, flexibility, partially defined or undefined. Modules of the living cells are mounted in pairs, parallel to themself, developing a system of spiral staircases, that connect to each other structural elements. The result is a creation of a " spiral infrastructural " theoretically infinite. Not more horizontal favela, but a vertical favela.
