Fakten

Projekt: An architectural Concept Competition for a Landmark Tower/ U2 Studio Grand Canal Dock
Kunde: Grand Canal Dock Authority
Ort/Datum: Dublin/2003
Umsetzung: Wettbewerb “letzter Durchgang”

The building combines virtual influences and reality by joining the outer world and life within the building and creating the point block with its shell as an oversized digital brain – The T(hink)-Machine. The general design reminds us of container cranes as used in the docklands. But it changes sight and sound by the movements – virtual and real – interior and exterior. The base is the interface connecting man and machine. Stairs and escalators, suspended floors with bars, cafés, nightclubs etc. invite, move and inspire life inside and outside the socle.
