Date of Defense 2004-09-15 Availability unrestricted AbstractThe project is a mixed-use building based on three main Situationist themes:
1. The creations of situations - creating a foundation for the spontaneous interaction between users of a building and people randomly passing by.
2. The Labyrinth - a playful structure that is not necessarily rational and leaves scope for new discoveries that are not evident when you enter the building.
3. Unitary Urbanism - avoiding the sharp distinctions between workplace, residential housing and leisure, the building aims to integrate all aspects of human endeavor. The building should reflect all aspects of the city, hence being a condensed image of the city. The building contains shops, cafes, restaurants, apartments and movie theatres. The building is open and invites the users to explore.
