In the way of a bridge, a linear preparations of rooms, suspended on 4 concrete pillars, is designed to be a structural composition perched on a hilltop, relatively than an opaque edifice rising out of it, maximizing mild, area, sky and perspective.” Sustainability was a significant factor considered when creating the plans for the fashionable edifice.
