The most striking feature of this contemporary office complex is the impressive truss that surrounds the construction. This garment-like ornament protects from the sun without obscuring the view from the interior, while also providing a reassuring sense of security. The irregular shape of its elements, meanwhile, are designed to excite and stimulate the minds of onlookers.
Initially inspired by the recurring items of a pergola and trigonometric plotting forms on computers, the design and construction of the lattice were based on the use of cellular materials which are a key area of our research and development.
Not only did this expand the design possibilities, it also contributed to the construction’s sound-proofing and solar energy performance.
