EPO Polis
The Hague - shortlisted
Inspired by the qualities of the periodic table, this design orders the programmatic content of the new EPO building in a framework that enhances the identity of each element and at the same time demonstrates its parity with the others. The elements (office modules, ancillary rooms and central facilities) and the ordering system (a grid of lighted corridors) together form a complex collective landscape, both indoors and outdoors: a micro universe of work spaces and leisure spaces . It is here that, both on a functional and a conceptual level, the fundamental beauty of science meets the spatial beauty of architecture.
