Project Description

FROM THE ARCHITECTS:

Emerging Organically from Complexity

The Giant Campus is a compact village that accommodates diverse programmatic functions in a flexible framework of architectural forms that move into and out of a sculpted landscape. An undulating office building and an augmented ground plane marry architecture to landscape and environment to site. Liberated from a primary ordering device such as figure-ground, competing layers disperse, fragment, and integrate. The once clear delineation of man-made and nature blurs into a wet palimpsest, and familiar distinctions between city and landscape, site and non-site, imagined and real bleed into one another. Landscape, once the blank canvas for architecture and urbanism, becomes an active tool, shaped by complex urban forces but also, reciprocally, shaping its context.
