Void in the Roof

Located in a slope of a mountain near the sea, this research institute is designed to take in the bountiful nature around the site.

The concept is to create spaces where researchers who devote themselves to their investigation meet visitors while clearly articulating the spaces of them.


The void is inserted to the roof and the terrace is inserted to the volume, making the animated agora.

In this terrace one would meet others, and it would arouse dialogues between humans.
