Overall tower shape, structure to respond to site context, program.
Main parameters:

  • Floor-to-ceiling height.
  • Diagonal spacing between floors to maximise light penetration and ventilation.
  • Edge definition for various requirements of program.

//spiraling tubular structure presents . . .

  • A Fushion of spatial and architectural expression.
  • An Expression composed by series of tube structure which are all customized according to its functional need and demand.


    //Exploring the:

  1. Scale- proportion of x,y,z axis
  2. Density
  3. Continuity- structural & functional
