Transparent Cells

Arch Daily offers some great imagery from a project by Aristide Antonas, along with collaborators Katerina Koutsogianni & Yannikos Vassiloulis called ‘Transparent Cells’ which shows a proposal for proposal for a the Architecture School at Delft featuring pixelated spatial arrangements that can be reconfigured as necessary to accomodate new programs. The Hundertwasser-esque vegetal compartments are an interesting addition to a project that seems quite technology driven.

A bit of explanation via Arch Daily: “The “buildings” that are supporting the computer cells are formed with the use of new glass technology and they include parts planted with specific light trees sometimes hanging in suspended pots. These living towers offer an immediate populated view, an emblematic image and in the same time an elevation for an architecture school of today….The new common space of such an institution for architecture is configured as a necessarily fragmented school, as a space where everybody uses his small personal “computer cell” in order to contribute in a community.”
