trees and facade

1038treandlog.jpg

This view of the building shows the very fundamental and conceptual approach, an interesting aspect and the relationship between the facade and the surrounding trees, some are indeed located very close to the building. None of the existing trees have had to be cut down. The facade on one part has many of the frames embedded with tree logs, and they are mostly treated to protect against vermin attacks. The logs are found on site, relocated and made into small discs which from a fenestration to one side of the building, The colour has shown slight bleaching and colour changes due from sunlight, and this makes the facade even more curious as the colour starts to migrate to a faded bleached brown. The facade is easily visible from the car park below, and makes an unforgettable experience as it casts impressive shadows into the lobbies, sales and dining areas of the building.
