From the architect. They dance, they move, leaving light to play his game of reflections and shadows. This project includes  offices and an hotel, planned in several phases that’s why we need to split the volume into 3 entities. Wilde openings, also dancing, dig these volumes. We gladly go away from this all-glass architecture which almost automatically represents the office buildings by developing an architecture design more massive, more physical. Economy prevailing in this project, we will use a simple process for both the expression of the structure and exterior.

    “Dancing” is a far cry from the expression of these office buildings. I am scared for the well-being of the workers who have to use these cold, prison-like hives. I have a bad feeling about the Foxconn mentality of Western architects who work in China with less regards for workers than factory foremen.

      it’s somewhat like prison.
