From the Architects:

This project focuses on the research of using minimal surfaces as spatial elements for programmatic interweaving.

RTV – Headquarter is a building for TV and communications studios in the city of Zurich.The site is located at Zuriberg neighborhood, on high level. The program is divided into different parts: administrative area, TV studios, radio studios, an open public zone, working spaces and offices for internal use.

Inspired by the behavior of liquid crystals, their ability to change their conditions from solid to fluid depending on temperature, to form “soap”-films between their borders and to change their directions, I started to experiment and simulate the various conditions of liquid soap-films and minimal surfaces. Porosity is one of the qualities that characterize minimal surfaces. As an architectural design tool emerging qualities like visual and path porosity results in a highly differentiated space.

Surfaces generated to achieve spatial interweaving. every component has different kinds of spatial qualities which could be used to generate a hybrid program and achieve a maximum of manyfold communication and interaction.
