URBAN TOWER FOR ANTWERP

Our project is an interpretation of a specific idea of urbanism which establishes rules and allows for the possibility of diversification. What we propose is actually a variation on an urban subject, implementing a set of rules and actions that were already fixed in a masterplan in a creative and intuitive way. It is a variation on the typology of tall buildings. Our project differs from the well-known concepts of skyscrapers and tall buildings, the former being structures that become icons by descending from the sky towards the ground in a deus-ex-machina kind of fashion, the latter being understood simply as a vertical extrusion of the ground towards a certain elevation.
What we do propose is the idea of an urban tower.
