Rogier van der Heide:
The past six years, between architects UNStudio and myself a close collaboration has been established. UNStudio is an architecture office with great appreciation of light present in all of their work. The unique 51.3m high concave façade has got a lighting and product design conceived in a joint design process between the architects, my team at Arup and Alliance Optotek (AOP), the local lighting manufacturer. Using workshops and brainstorm sessions, the team developed a textured façade skin responding to the environment by reflecting daylight and showing its 3D nature at night with integrated lighting.
