dynamic space / the birth of the idea
The birth of the idea
The inspiration, however, arrived at a precise moment in December 2004, when I was watching the view from the Olympic Tower in NYC, on 51st and 5th. I noticed that from a certain spot you could see the East River and the Hudson River, both sides of Manhattan… That is when I thought to myself: “Why don’t we rotate the entire floor? That way, everybody can see both the East River and the Hudson River, as well as Saint Patrick’s Cathedral!”
That is how I got inspired to create the building that changes its shape continuously.
But it really all started during my childhood, when I used to watch every evening the sun set over the Mediterranean. The huge red sun would slowly fall into the water, signaling that one day was over and another was about to begin. This aspect of motion and its relation to the dimension of time always intrigued me.
When I grew up and became an architect I understood that an architect should design buildings that adjust to life. They should adapt to our space, our functionalities and our needs that change continuously – and even to our sense of beauty, itself in continuous motion.
These are the first buildings to have a fourth dimension: Time.
This is the new philosophy of dynamic buildings, adjusting to sunrise and sunset, to the wind and to the view – thus becoming part of nature.
I call these buildings “Designed by Time, Shaped by Life”.
