During the 1950s and 1960s, in Caracas, a significant number of architecture and urbanism projects were developed. Their fragmentary nature illustrates the concrete reality of modern projects. In this case, a helicoidal shape stands on a hill, as a double spiral mantle, in one of the city's denser centers. It is a building meant to be traversed, an apology of the use of cars in the early seventies. In spite of its apparently rigid character, however, it has indistinctly served as a police headquarters and as a commercial center
