The project focusses on transforming a typological condition into a topological condition by taking a precedent that is heavily invested in a plan configuration and transform it into a sectional condtion. The mass was strategically divided into three towers, with each tower having its own functions. The project also experimented on the type of facade that the building was wrapped up with. Facade styles from three different time period was taken and overlapped on top of each other and the non - scalar characteristic of the facade maintains the obsure characteristics of the mass.
