suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
sofia KANERUD: Inundating Infestation is a proposal for a housing, office and retail tower in the center of Malmö. The main idea of the project is to use one single body multiple times in various ways. The bodies are added on to as well as subtracted from a primitive building. Clusters of bodies naturally merge into larger systems. Each system is necessary to generate a specific spatial quality, such as skin organization, light filtration and programmatic distribution. The accumulation of bodies reconfigures the building mass and allows for new possibilities of architectural qualities.
