The work consisted of a group of six very luminous pavilions, three opposite the other three. Four measure 125 x 125 m. and two measure 125 x 168 m. The pavilions are externally uniform, creating a continuous semi-transparent facade, supported on “V”-shaped porticos. Between the pavilions there is a pedestrian street with a translucent roof.

The structure is supported on four large bridge beams, measuring 8 x 7 m., two for every pair of opposite facades, dividing the roof into nine squares of a surface of about 37 x 37 m. in the two rectangular pavilions there are the same squares, although In this case they are twelve. The bridge beams, as well as containing the different fluid conduits, also have air diffusers. The roof is deck type. The restaurants are covered with a light vaulted roof in painted galvanised sheet metal.
