1089 Art and Beauty
The idea came from a feather. We want to create feather-light-touch façade, like wings moving in the wind yet reflecting lights from the surroundings. We extended the entrance height and modified the façade by using over 5,000 pieces of white metal panelling, and over 30 workers hand-installed the wings without glue. White is considered the colour of perfection and associated with purify and cleanliness. The pattern is unique and gives audiences different feelings from different angles.
Statement of the jury
It’s fascinating how the environment is reflected in the multifaceted design, inspired by a bird’s feather. The facade with artistic cladding made from over 5,000 sheets of polished white metal, gives the building an unmistakable identity and beauty, as well as attracting a lot of attention.
