Evaluation

This megastructure is designed based on the "misalignment of the floors." The staggering effect creates an outside terrace on each floor and visually connects the different indoor facilities such as library, childcare facility and museum, allowing just the right amount of distance from each other to co-exist in the building. Suspended floors produce an astylar space and their thickness addresses the issue of noise and securing space for building facilities, providing various solutions with the power of design. The development of this new public facility well reflects the complex and diverse times today, as seen in the collaboration between a general architectural office and a young architect.
