This time the distribution of parking spaces is optimized to maintain existing trees and the spaces occupied by them, which can be neither square nor road, to plot a network of pedestrian walkways from the parking lot to the university take advantage . These paths vary in size depending on the estimated flow of passersby, setting a new tree structure.

The squares are marked by circles of different sizes and colors intended to ward off the generic nature of this type of non-places to bring a new image linking him to its location in a natural environment.
