Scheme

Protective against the impact of the intersection, the building is oriented within where, together with adjacent buildings, it forms an open atrium, a nucleus of public activities.

Information

The high-polished minimal form interacts with drivers passing by, echoing their movement. The “chromosome image” of the vertical window openings provides movement with a large scale rhythm, the layer of creased metal in two contrasting hues interacts with motion by changing colour, the outer layer of printed glass softens the volume in small scale rhythm of continuous code.
