The concept is a porous monolithic 160m single span shell that integrates the esthetic, structural, spatial and lighting requirements into one simple but complex solution
This project is a perfect example of our office objective to come to a kind of bio-intelligenge. An intelligence inherent in biological evolution. One could call our methodology: Anti-design. A methodology that stands perpendicular to the unsustainable Modernist strategies of hacking things to bits, and splitting problems up, while in the process loosing the coherence and many characteristic qualities. Quite the opposite, we attempt to create design that searches for coherence and tries to integrate information into one singular simple but complex solution. This is a much more efficient, sustainable and value generating process.
