Entry Description

This is a building of pure phenomena. Like the ripples that
spread outwards from skipping stones across a creek,
Avenue is a series of pillowy curtain walls that radiate out
over the surface. This ripple effect helps the building turn
the corner, giving it a picturesque planning outcome; the
fluid surface reflects and refracts the sun’s rays. Like a pool
of water, Avenue’s surface is cool in the shade, but flares in
the warmth of the afternoon sun. The natural surroundings,
from the sky to the trees, are captured in the façade – their
movements are mirrored in the surface, creating dynamic
inhabitation. In this way, the design of the building
amplifies the characteristics of the natural world and then
rearranges them into discrete pictures.
