The proposal evokes the portal archetype, an architectural element which distinctly denotes and demarcates the passage between different situations. 

The original practice of obelisks pair, semantically, emphasizes the threshold crossing, becoming the access portal towards a space which, instinctively, acquires a sense of sacred importance. Each element represents a ray of light, the connecting element between sky and earth. 

The portal archetype, created by two adjacent vertical elements, clearly defines a crossing limit but, at the same time, creates a limbo, an enclosed void in-between the two vertical elements, which enfolds the ephemeral passageway and roars to the sacred land of dreams.

Hexagonal concrete slabs are laid on each roundabout, positioned so to recall an apparently concentric honeycombstructure, and generate a base for each portal to emerge from.  Modules rise or sink towards the central element giving each artifact a different personality accentuating and linking to the idea that Lamborghini creates earth bounded objects that tends to the sky.
