The Concrete Canopy building is located in the middle of a park with sycamore, acacia, oak and poplar trees. Inspired by the silhouettes of the trees Serero architects created a computer script, generating a facade that assembles non-repetitive and non-standard components.The building’s roof, despite its irregular appearance, is generated from simple geometrical rules, allowing a variation of shapes between the elements.
“ ... Trees are often a source of inspiration to me; they are complex structures elaborated from simple rules, growing coherently and continuously in time and space. The efficiency of those structures are based on the notions of redundancy and differentiation in opposition to the concepts of modern engineering such as modern optimisation and repetition...”David Serero (to find out more...)
