Abstract
This paper seeks to explain how the work of Félix Candela, specifically the “Manantiales restaurant”, has a major rigor creative, closely linked to mathematical precision, which allows to push the architectural form towards new experiments that make it stand out in their immediate context and serving as an important influence to existing forms that although they seem to be very free and even in some cases capricious, but respond to the same creative rigor that drive new and rich ways of conceiving space for human development.
