Animal Asylum in Ghent (B) 2015




It is an accessible ‘temple’ in the landscape. The box that holds the program. Frame (30 x 30 m) whith established conditioned areas. Readable box with strong identity. Facade as a continuous and generic lamellae façade which embraces entire building. Façade as a mediator allowing osmosis between asylum and its surroundings. The blades are positioned at the angle of 45 degrees. This gives the building from every different point, a different perception. Durable hard drive that can hold various transformations and files.It is an accessible ‘temple’ in the landscape. The box that holds the program.
