This project was a competition entry into the the 2011 Europan competition. The solution comprises of an organizational system which generates varied conditions within the public/private spectrum and a volumetric system which generate varied conditions in the “figure-ground” relationship.
The volume of the system utilizes folds to create a unique identity and to establish a variable relationship to the sloped topography of the site. The shift in the site’s topography and the architecture’s geometry creates a duplicity in the projects elevations: ground floors become roofs, roofs become hills, etc.
The combination of the system, volume and topography generates a multiplicity of relationships between private/public/residential/office/floor/roof and etc. which inform the overall concept of the project.
