Anagram Architects :











Although some fortification against the busy street was required, it was crucial for the fa ade to ai???converseai??? with the external activity.

The flanking wall is conceived as an animated, dynamic skin that reflects the bustle of the street while its porosity playfully engages with the street corner.

A six brick module is laid in staggered courses that create twirling vertical stacks and an undulating surface. The construction of the screen wall was a result of a five-week process devising masonry techniques on site. From verification of plumb-line to the structural bonding of the brick courses, methods of brick-laying were devised through deep on-site collaboration between the masons and the architects.

Through computer modeling, the architects realized that a simple rotating module of bricks would create the kind of visual and textural complexity needed to achieve the design objective of engaging the street corner.
