This project is an attempt to create a continuous and porous volume filled with a superdense column system. Aiming for a new version of Mies’s Universal Space, the vertical structure overloads the void space to create a homogenous spacial quality.
The continous volumes are formed by the program, light needs, circulation paths and the bridging levels connecting the Mies towers. The pillar system changes density and angle, based on structural needs, and the horizontal division of the towers. In the ‘void’ space the structure is omni-present, while in the closed volumes are moved to the perimeter. These two structural parts and the pinch of the skin are connecting precisely in the penetration points. The fabric-like panelization emphasizes the feeling of interiority by making the volumes soft and heavy at the same time.
