Artist Statement:


Beginning with complex zoning and right-to-light requirements, this tower concept explores the performative development of a paired-blade, double-skin façade. The macro-scale environmental form is enhanced by micro-scale exterior-actuated louvers that track sun movement and interior heat gain, and provide a naturally comfortable interior year-round while preserving the prevailing views.
