Fibonacci Spiral Structures
Although fiction this project is designed for a specific site in a specific moment in time. It is the result of a thorough research on urban, cultural, economic and demographic data that manifests into architecture.
In this mixed used high-rise building architectural categories like form, function, structure are precisely defined by an under-lying three dimensional grid. This grid is derived from the Fibonacci algorithm.
The Fibonacci algorithm is used as a tool to specify organic process of ordering and growth. In this project it is used as a parametric design tool.
