Architects are using Hypercubes and Geometry to Design the Costa Rica Congress Hall
"Designed with series of structurally dependent and interconnected concrete-cast hypercubes clad in steel louvers that gain their strength through physical connectivity."
CAZA is the architectural design studio that has designed what would be the most interesting architectural building in Costa Rica.
The design is intended for the Costa Rica Congress Hall and is part of a competition that would be led by architects Carlos Arnaiz and Laura Del Pino.
The project is still in the competition process, so they are waiting for the Costa Rica government to decide on the look and style of the building design they would like for their new Congress Hall.
Costa Rica is widely known for their ecotourism, so placing this building anywhere other than its capital of San Jose would be unfit for this style of design, because it would be surrounded by much smaller and not-so-modern looking buildings.
However San Jose is exactly where the new building will be built and a quick Google image search of what the city actually looks like brings up some already interesting looking architecture, but there is still nothing even closely similar to the style of design that CAZA has come up with for this project, so we will have to wait and see if this design will even be chosen by government officials.
Architectural drawings and designs:
CAZA hasn’t provided too much information about the build process, however they do have many drawings and illustrations representing exactly how it will be completed as well as conceptual designs to show us what it will look like in the real world, with people walking around the building and with trees and plants growing along the exterior of the buildings hypercubes.
According to CAZA, the way that the architecture and design will function is through a “series of structurally dependent and interconnected concrete-cast hypercubes clad in steel louvers. The hypercubes will then gain their strength through physical connectivity.” cazarch.com/project/costa-rica-congress-hall
