This fibrous concrete shell was erected as an exoskeleton construction with a load-bearing shell and thin floor plate and column free. The shell is based on structural and tectonic hierarchies and a contemporary design, its articulation as a single self-organized structure responds to common conflicting design criteria. Pretty funky I think.
The articulation of the shell was initially generated by an algorithm of cell-division procedure. Responding that way to the tower geometry the shell is at the same time an ornamental and performant element. Its non-linear structure distributes the load through a network of paths organizing intensities collectively.
