Why it's hidden?
DIY – FLEXIBLE SHELL

The design looks for the best possible solutions for the site and the given program. In order to find the optimal solution for the shopping center the designers allowed themselves the freedom to look for configurations that go further than the mere placement of the shopping program onto the site. We believe that this public building can play a key role in the development not only of the site itself but also for the surrounding area, the city and its stakeholders.

An architecture that combines the qualities of a well designed shopping center with additional public and private program has a range of benefits for users , the city and investors. It will be attractive for a wider range of user groups than initially intended, it will create a high quality public space for users and visitors that will remain attractive and competitive towards other shopping centers in the future. Therefore these proposals suggest a win win situation based on the synergy between different types of program. In this document we therefore explore the potential of these ingredients.
