From the Architects:
Divided between paper and virtual information, it characterizes a reality of a modern way to use space, these places will evolve in a parallel manner to media progress but especially to technology progress, having as main support the computer supplied with Internet.
Elevations are made of two types of bricks: a varnish brick and an extruded brick with a technology which makes possible to collect solar energy during the day and to use it for lighting during the evening. Each extruded brick is located in a precise place, symbolizing a study of Internet network connections existing now a day. These networks create a random virtual map, bridge of internet connections, synonymous of “media” interconnections.
With a simple program, the interior is a sober space that encourages “media”tation, meditation, and lecture.
