The approach method of design for a project of this typology has the peculiarity of having the vehicle and its circulation play a very significant role. The integration of the diverse transportation methods to the context brings us to start with a circulation study of the site. We explore the possible behaviors of each of the vehicle types threw the site together with the program requirements and develop a desirable solution for a route. After looking closely to each case individually we perform the task of combining these routes and study their interaction. The result of this exercise will dictate the geometry to manage the site.
