The proposal has the character of a loose, discontinuous configuration of apparently dispersed building units and lines. Yet, the design could be understood if it were imagined as a “ruin” of a former typical building in the same location. In accordance to this design gesture, access to the builoding is facilitated by a zig-zag promenade that gradually penetrates it. The visitor gradually explores the different dispersed parts of the proposed building complex as they walk along this promenade.
