  • four towers in one
    santa monica CALIFORNIA

    morphosis: in response to the interconnectedness of the new global city, four towers in one re-conceives the conventional urban grid as a dynamic, multi-dimensional organization, or armature, able to support the complex systems that define contemporary urban life. like the complex yet coherent intricacy of a traditional chinese puzzle, each site is conceived as a 3-dimensional envelope, interwoven with the other projects, rather than as a 2-dimensional isolated footprint.

    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    tom WISCOMBE: our point of departure for this project was to engage the nascent cultural paradigm shift from thinking about energy as something which comes magically from distant sources to something which can be generated locally in a variety of ways. our goal was not, however, to undertake an engineering experiment, or to simply express material processes, although this is certainly one dimension of the project. our primary goal was to create a sense of delight and exotic beauty around new technologies by decontextualizing them and amplifying their potential atmospheric and spatial effects.
