We propose the use of glass slots to bring light into the car parking and many cuts that connect pedestrian movement between the upper and lower layers. Mounts appear to support the buildings and hide a plethora of underground programmers. In this way nothing spoils the sculptural composition of groundscape and buildings.
The paths themselves are forming a tessellated mesh that enables multiple choices of routes. Walking along them, the visitor experiences the building facades from closed towards fully transparent.
We devised the exterior façade pattern through intensive use of Ecotec environmental analysis software. The facades adapt to their own position/ angle towards the sun while taking into account local differences such as other buildings in front providing shading.
Shading is also important for the voids.
Architecturally these bands originate as lines in the landscape, and then run along the slots that lead the visitors/ flaneurs inside the buildings’ internal void space where they creep up and spiral around the void to then spill over the roof. The roof is thus expressed as the continuation of the landscape with multiple folds and glazed areas, rendering the top floors into very special areas.
