The Prague Castle’s composite silhouette of a number of spires holds the recipe of what can be a great addition to the neighborhood skyline – a package of slender towers instead of a major fats slab. The short consisted of retail at the backside flooring, workplaces above and condos on the best: 3 programmes of different excellent proportions. So we determined to make a tremendous effective slab making a noise barrier that protects town from the noisy trafic. formed through the positioning, it used to be a sq. slab eighty metres large and tall and 20 metres deep. To open the location to the subway, we twisted the slab open, leaving a slit for a bridge to go through from station to highway. the 2 halves have been 800 m2 each one, excellent for workplaces. The cut up slab was once turned around to reit the location, whilst optimising the orientation of the residence courses in the direction of East and West, for higher perspectives and solar. As a final manipulation, the slab was once reduce open with incisions to create an ideal 00 m2 ground plan for nook residences within the top a part of the development. the result's a construction that gently transforms from one typology to the opposite, from the floor flooring to the penthouse, assuming perfect layouts for varied courses: retail, place of work and housing. on the heart, all ground plans intersect, making a 1600 m2 universal loor for communal amenities, canteen and convention rooms. The ensuing development is a sort of break up character structure: either a super-eficient Soviet slab and Czech cluster of towers. From East/West, a wall of application – from North/South, a chandelier of spires. As an advantage, the tower types an enormous W for Walter, an unintended realisation of our aborted try out at city typography. by way of combining the culture of 36 three building towers in clusters, normal for the previous Prague, with the rational manner of organizing tall structures, identified from the trendy skyscrapers, it truly is attainable to make a brand new type of modern tower, which unites historical past, performance and the necessity for a brand new landmark. what's going to look as  diverse towers is basically one non-stop construction, that's sliced up and pulled aside to maximise the volume of floor and facade zone to create beautiful residences. The manipulation of the slab turns a normal condo slab right into a sequence of towers. via twisting the construction, it “opens up” in the direction of the environment – letting in humans and lightweight. 38 three TAMAYO artwork GALLERY patron: PATRONATO TAMAYO dimension: 3,00 m2 position: MEXICO prestige: pageant 1ST PRIZE ARCHITECT: mammoth + ROJKIND ARQUITECTOS Set upon a steep hillside in Atizapan at the outskirts of Mexico’s biggest city, the hot Tamayo Museum, will function a nucleus of schooling and tradition, in the community, locally, and across the world.
