TOD`S

Marentes + Partners as Architects

TOD`S by Marentes + Partners


The parametric method that was used in the design process creates a large number of shapes. The final selection between them is realized thanks to an intuition and the search of the original beauty of the universe. This is how fluid elegance, which can not be expressed in closed angular forms, begins to exist. What emerged as the main design opportunity of the project was to create an emblematic and experimental design, satisfying the standard box dimensions required. The answer was developed as a collection of cascading arches that vary not only in size but function, also provide a structural system and create a comfortable environment with a rich experience of light and shadow.
