      There’s nothing like frivolously using tons of CO2-producing concrete to support an industry that also destroys the environment… Yay!

    Nice 2.5 dimensional shapes, but the scale of the structure seems rather monstrous.

    Would be helpful to see some site and floor plans to actually understand the layout of the project. From the images it looks like some random extruded objects were thrown in a desert and now the architect is trying to come up with possible uses for these objects. Interesting.

      i agree, everything looks super thick if you actually manage to spot the people in the first image

      the diagrams nicely articulate how they got that way (some pretty stale operations in the computer)
