"Innovation, Speed, Cooperation, Passion"
The motto of client's company which is in the area of Heavy Industry that manufacture massive machines.
The intriguing feelings on the dilemma of lightness and heaviness, fast and slow...... are the main topic of the project.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The inspiration of the project is full of conflict and emotion, to express this sophiscated feelings, a pure sentimental way of thinking is the key.
Enormous unsymmetrical lines, forms and shapes are used on the building and it is trying to tell that innovation needed to be out of the box.
Large area of glass facade is trying to enhance the lightness of the building, however, on top of the glass facade, we intened to put on a crosses feature to express the strength and heaviness. Besides of the crosses, we do also create a "bird" like feature which project the feeling of speed and dynamic. On the roof top, an upward pointed roof is where the passion show. Within the area, we do have a composition of three buildings (main office,muti-function and entrance building), the way they position is also means the way they cooperate.
