An architectural project starts with an idea. It can be representative, metaphorical, purely functional and so on. This concrete model represent the “seed” of thoughts on which a project is built upon. The seed stage is an important part of the design process that leads to a solid concept. In this case, the idea of a central core from which cantilevering staggered plates hold one another to create the building envelope. This was part of the design process of the Structure Instigated Space Project.
