The twice-bent, in-situ concrete surface rests on the steel supports like a "sheet of paper". The resulting deformation elevates the natural bending process to a structural principle. The curved contour of the roof, derived from the position of the existing trees, suggests accessibility from all sides, providing an open space for... More
