EuroCity Siska
Ljubljana, Slovenia
The EuroCity proposal mediates between urban design and architecture. It is a large-scale, 12-story building, volumetrically defined as a hybrid of established architectural typologies, arranged with shifts and slides one above the other in the vertical direction. Instead of proposing a dispersed urban composition of autonomous buildings with public ground floors and single-program floors stacked on top, or a compact shopping mall typology with an atrium, the project is an amalgam of both. Horizontally separated, pure program anchors work as compact solids with a soft and fluid tissue of 'plankton' in-between. Floating masses, program ancors, 'plankton', hybrid typology.
