Honorable Mention in an open competition
Designed form closely follows the context and nature of the place. Slender and slim structure refers to the number of towers in the Wroclaw’s landscape.
52 meter high tower, rises from the ground-floor adapted to the geometry of the site. Creating a random cubature could cause danger of obscuring views of the University building and the Oder River waterfront. Proposed tall and narrow tower prevents valuable views.
Perforation of the structure increases with height. That gives the impression that the structure of the wall is disappearing in the air and the mist of outdoor thermal pool. SPA in the tower is a perverse manifestation of the spirit of our time, in which the profane becomes sacrum, and the cult of the body and health take on the ritual character , as a contemporary post-religious form.
