1_ the grid as the identity
2_ the edge conditions of our sector characterize the typical block: sharp angle condition unifies the site and defines its identity
3_ redefining the full block > breaking down the block to one smaller unit in order to structure the volume and bring the mass closer to the user = *typical spiral block
4_ the sharp edge conditions introduce the idea of lightness > “buildings with zero thickness”.
The play in perception and the feeling of endless space is a reference to the work of the sculptor Anish Kapoor.
