In order to simultaneously produce a strong expression and a reasonably economical building, we have designed a simple steel frame building with an aluminum and glass storefront system that sits on the floor slabs while the screen system of superformed aluminum panels is attached to a simple back up frame in front of the exposed slab edges. The plan is shaped in such a way as to form a series of ascending stairs along the canal side of the building.

^I like it, I wonder how it will look in person?

I'm in love... The irregular fenestration is pure art.

This design appears to be very similar to the Shanghai Park Hotel (albeit, a bit more compacted and squat) (1934):

There are so many "progressive" architects today that seem to think that punching different shaped holes in a building is the best way to be original and abstract. If that's where architecture is headed, someone please shoot me now.

Rational was different in 1925 and today. The buildings themselves, in terms of facade and concept are very rational. The form...not so much imo.

Nothing extraordinary (and of course nothing over 100 meters, god forbid), but these are my favourite ("highrise") proposals for Malmö/Copenhagen at the moment.


Hyllie Hotel, Malmö







*Wingårdh Arkitekter







Örestad Downtown (not final design), Copenhagen





*Daniel Libeskind







Copenhagen Towers II, Copenhagen





*Foster & Partners







Bella Center Hotel, Copenhagen





*3xNielsen

Oh god, look at this layout, I would feel so claustrophobic in there with all those narrowing passageways in every direction and the sharp angled corners in the rooms that would not only make the space feel smaller but render that space completely useless. I hate buildings that try and be creative by making no sense at all...

And what is that in the top-leftish corner? Is that just a piece of open space that the architects had no idea how to use?

That kind of space is what architects designate for "Mechanical Space"

That really goes with the museum. They're both so 'sail' like.

I know what mech space is. However, I don't seen much of a need for mech space in an about 3 story 4000 sqft building... Besides, mech space is usually accessible in some way, i.e. has a door to get inside through. I think that space is just called poor design...
