The aim of this master thesis is to design a high rise office building in a dense urban environment that meets the comprehensive needs of future knowledge workers. The scheme for the final proposal will be generated by challenging the traditional ways of designing office buildings, with a fundamental and holistic research into basic physiological needs and the future of information based workspaces.
The architectural focus, given the economic incentives in projects of this scale, will be on creating an efficient prime estate in a location where such an investment would have justifiable urban- and societal benefits. The building should make a profound contribution to the existing skyline and seek the resolve the challenges and negative impact large scale buildings often have on their adjacent street-level urban environment in terms of shadows, wind turbulence and scale.
