It is made from a single sheet of
Corten steel with a thickness of
8 mm that is then machined and
welded. The end result is similar
to the cross section of a U-shaped
metal profile with a “Corten effect”
baked paint finish.
The elementary nature of this series allows it to blend into the surroundings, provoking more complex spatial relations. That quality enables its use to be extended to historical areas where the textures and atmospheres generated by the superimposing of cultures and times do not accept the use of just any material or shape.
1.Corten Steel Cornice Added
a. The Corten Steel Cornice is made of Corten steel plate and Corten steel channel sections. The design is intended to mark the prominent South Corner of the building with a distinctive architectural form, that is both visually light in its thinness, and eye catching in its silhouette.
b. The September 27th, 2016 presentation did not include a cornice feature in its presentation.
2. Corten Steel Channel Façade
a. The Corten Steel Channel Façade is made of Architecturally Exposed Structural Steel MC8x9 channels, which are assembled into a rain-screen façade at the South Corner of the building. The channel façade is a play on the area’s history of light industry and scrap yards, and uses the raw structural steel channels as an homage to the site’s history.
b. The September 27th, 2016 presentation included a generic zinc metal shingle in its presentation.
