The project was based on overlapping layers of a diagrid geometric pattern, created by rotating a fat triangle.
The overlapping rotation created opportunities for different floor configurations that accommodate the various programs. The facade is a smaller scale diagrid which reacts to both the external environment and internal program.
I think the strength of our proposal was the simple set up which through multiple simultaneous iterations creates a complexity that is still very readable.
I worked on this project with Diego Ricalde and his partners at MMX. I want to thank them for adding their talent, and I think that while we did not get the prize we produced a great proposal.
