Hula Hoops, by Fuksas

At daytime the membrane is just very orange, but at night the building lightens up like a big lantern showing the ant-like supporting structure of the façade and will eventually display projected images, video or text of what’s going on inside. Like a huge billboard, the architect writes, or a giant light sculpture. In the end it is big architecture that enhances its bigness by adding cheap volume. The thin membrane just adds cheap foyer-space: no weight or monumentality, just air.(to find out more..)
