From the architect. This building is a specialized studio building for designers of micro technology components. We call it the monastery of the nanometer.

The microcosm of people who think in nanometers is being expressed by a Zen-like water garden surrounded by an organically shaped courtyard building.

The highly specialized product is elusive and small.

The art of arranging grids of conducting material in multiple layers, possibly even storing an entire encyclopedia on the area of a thumbnail, represents the key technology of the information age.
