A city inside a building;

The project articulates an extra-extra large architectural typology that extends beyond the conventional scale of a singular building and aims at becoming a self-enclosed urban form. Mobilizing Buckminster Fuller’s ‘tensegrity’ structural logic, this megastructure accommodates a complex
assemblage of typologies, functions, and forms within its differentiated envelope-a geometrically and materially optimized tetrahedron which, through fractalization, subdivides its inner mass while defining an infrastructural network that operates as a container integrating diverse public spaces and landscapes, in turn (and ultimately) performing as a city within a building.
