Concept

The architectural proposal does not view the element of destruction as an experience of horror, but as motivation for monitoring and understanding the unpredictable force of the natural elements. A new topography is created as a point of destruction and rebirth. The building rises up over the disaster as a feat of advanced technology - a laboratory, controlling natural elements through scientific structures and experiments.
