The King used to walk around his hunting Preserve and appreciating the panorama well framed by long treelines. Hundreds of years had passed and this regal perspective is still there affecting physically the city.

A net of invisible lines flies on top of the city deciding the the destiny of the architecture of each single lot. Here tall buildings are subjected to obscure rules outside the usual planning laws.

No developer can escape from this rule. The skyline assumes weird shapes without any apparent reason.

Anyone working in the city had faced this at least ones in its carrier, invisible outlines of the domes are running from one side to the other side of the skyscraper clusters deciding who can get higher or stay the same.

A special place for someone who lived long ago fights against the real estate and ambitious developers.
