The Hanging Wooden Tower
Best Project of Public Building or Facility
About the project
The hanging wooden tower is a concept for 7 levels public building. Commencing from the surrounding environment of the project, the concept, has been chosen to match the wooden forest.
The project consist of 7 levels, each level is a separate unit and has a cantilever to shade other units. Each level ends with an open end to achieve the required ventilation and give a feeling of the height and the air circulation at that point. The different levels are connected and hanged up by 8 big cylindrical columns, the columns also act as a support and a spacer between the levels.
This part of cubism approach is created in order to be improved in the future and start having individual units stacked on top of each other to save land space and reduce the construction time.
