commissioned by European Central Bank
In this design competition for the main office of the European Central Bank we proposed a vision for the ECB's new headquarters to be a living growing organism which is rooted and transforms out of its history. From there a new outward looking network is formed which is able to grow and adapt in order to harmoniously absorb new entities. In spite if fully integrating into the organism all the separate entities still retain their own identities.
