Outside the façade it has been designed as a skin done by white aluminum ribs which go across all the building, emulating the same rhythm of the interior trusses of the diaphanous space. This formal rhythm is broken with some pieces that goes out of the façade in different moments and that project pat on the external illumination of the building. From the façade you have the sense the interior of the big multipurpose area, coated by a second skin, which is the old brick façade that in the exterior it is painted in black. The façade which is located in the square, where it is the access to the main building the modern design it is interrupted with the conservation of the access of the old market ant the balcony.
