MINIMAL SKELETON (LONDON URBANISM)
STUDIO ZAHA HADID
c/o DANIEL REIST
UNIVERSITY OF APPLIED ARTS, VIENNA
We started developing our structure from a scripted braided torus equation.
The intension was to gain structure, facade and spatial differentiation out of one complex system. This system offers us maximum flexibility for very individual spaces, shapes and functions. The composition is highly differentiated and integrated in adaption to perform spatial requirements for living, leisure, office, working and landscape, each with its functional subsystems. An architectural system that has an enhanced capacity to adapt to its environment. The London Thams Gateway Area is the specified site, for the Minimal Skeleton. It gains a high variation of complexity by defining conditions (location on site, orientation, function, etc.) and reacting to them.
