This project explores the tectonic relationship between the exhibition of bullfighting and the structure used to train for it. The project uses a coordinated series of long-span wooden trusses to bridge the horse training facilities and the owner's private gallery. The estate coordinates a private residence, a guest house, worker housing, horse stables, and an Olympic sized training rink through a single tectonic expression in wood framing.
