Discord in the City & the City

This project offers a new perspective on the building ‘Copula Hall’ which becomes a premise interpreted as a singular organism that is cleaved into two: on the one hand, as two individual but interlaced systems; on the other, as an amalgamation of two that holds the administrative overlooking body for the two cities. This project design considers the delicate relationship between the two cities and is built with the intention to relieve the stress of the citizens of ‘breaching into the other city, by carefully designing the building that intertwines the two cities into one but in all awareness maintains clear segregation via circulation. Hence, the project sits in the context as a bold entity, yet adapting the form that blends and soothes two cities into one.
