The design proposes the installation of a dynamic façade that interacts as a filter between public and private space as well as between environmental context and user, optimizing the building’s sustainability imprint. The façade concept creates a restrained, clear appearance.
Aesthetically evocative of façade design of the Doha Oasis Development, the transparent elevation is generated by the successive cantilevering of the floor plates. The floors are un-referential to what is above and below.
The façade is constantly changing and that creates dynamic image of the building – different from each perspective.
Design seeks to interpret space, through light and shadow by exploring a simple element- the architecture of its envelope. A dynamic facade was developed to regulate light, adapt to climate change and enable cross ventilation. To this end, the idea of a form changing surface formed the basis of developing a structural mechanism to control the characteristics of different protected openings.
