All architecture is shelter, all great architecture is the design of space that contains, cuddles, exalts, or stimulates the persons in that space.Phillip Johnson - Architect
Good building concepts consider the fact that compelling spatial features result from clear planning, whereby the vertical dimension is part of the quality and function of a building.
Focus on verticality
Visible and inviting vertical connections extend the function of interconnected floors, creating a richer sequence of spaces through cross views.
The interplay between interior and exterior volumes enables the experience of space. The in-between space complements the building volumes and is defined by structural elements, such as roofed connecting paths and comprehensive landscaping.
Key to The third dimension
- Visible and inviting vertical connections contribute to the awareness of space.
- Consider an atrium to provide light and generosity of space.
- Cross views guide users throughout the building.
