More projects or works done from Coll-Barreu Arquitectos which all consist of spots/lines/angles.
I am particularly interested in those structures with angles and lines. Sometimes it even doesn't have to be a firm one. It's also very interesting to see that when the little planes don't match the lines and there're always overlapped parts where appear new patterns and colors.
When using different materials as the surface, various effect are shown like the shadow combined with the lights, or the reflection under the sunlight from the glass wall. Sometimes it can make up different views (/shapes) if you stand at the same spot and watch it at different times (with the lights changing).
"Clad in reflective glass that mirrors the changing sky, the tower anchors the expanding business district and provides a distinctive vertical axis on Hong Kong's crowded skyline.
At ground level, it is pulled back from the street to create a welcoming pedestrian environment that is fully accessible yet removed from urban congestion. Its innovative composite structural system of steel and concrete resists high-velocity winds and involved significant savings in construction time and materials."
