Metrobank Art and Design Excellence Awards Competition Entry published in Bluprint Vol.6 2014.
Stainless steel ridges follow the building pattern perforated as a means of water dispersion and redirection. Concrete, steel, and glass are fashioned to form the patterns inspired by the Atlas moth. Fenestration and permeability to light contribute to the energy saving and green capacities of the structure. Semi permanent partitions are built up in between columns and nearest to outside pedestrian traffic provide visual interest to fuel curiosity from the public.
Sectioned into three floors each with varying areas allow for multiple exhibitions to take place simultaneously or segregation for much broader ones. Ample walking space suggests going around the structure through variations of direction. Cavities for a small number of vehicles exist all over the perimeter.
