exploring alternative ways of creating a community

The quest to expand our conventional means of conquering nature waits for the right opportunity. Located in an area with a dimmed yet particular personality, the extablishment builds itself "upside-down". Starting to develop it by constructing several "towers", anti-buildings that only serve the purpose of creating the necessary frame for further, unexpected establishments, the community is based on a virtual grid, followed only through hazard and pragmatic reasons. Heavy yet dynamic, a paradox of architecture is being highlighted and showcased in an extreme fashion.
