#Luiis_3x ] Twisted Timber Shell Wraps Around a Parking Attendant’s Pavilion in France: ... [ #Luispokel ]
“The apparently simple geometric form hides the kinetic game at play, influencing the way in which one perceives the building and making it difficult to understand,” writes the architect. “The contortion attempts to go along with the flux in circulation that surrounds it. It is in this simple distortion that a complex shape is generated, achieving the project’s objective: a discrete yet intriguing contemporary form found in the diversity of its perceptive approaches.” Strategically oriented to maximize views across the parking lot, the L-shaped timber hut houses a parking attendant’s office, kiosk window, and restroom. The project was completed in 2010.
