Shenyang - invited
The goal is to create a prominent landmark for Shenyang city– a building that will be immediately recognized by the people passing through. The building is treated as one contemporary urban sculpture, made up of visual elements such as volumes, surfaces, lines, as well as intangible ones like wind, light and shadows. The complexity of the project is hidden under a simple architectural shape, so that people could remember and understand it easily. The project is divided into three simple elements: a monolith volume, drilled surface and a glass volume. When these three straight-forward elements met, a striking contrast is formed, giving a significant aesthetic value to the design.
