Lotus Tower exploits and celebrates the components of its construction, demonstrating the idea that structure is not something to be applied to the design; it is the design.
A combination of reinforced concrete and structural steel elements forms the exoskeleton that is the main support of the tower. The uniform array of these elements transfers the load of the circular floor slabs to the perimeter of the building. This allows freeing the interior from structural elements and giving enormous flexibility for the design of office spaces.
The inclined podium opens on the street while forming an accessible planted roof facing the bay. The green roof acts as an element of climatic control and insulation, protecting from the overheating of the interior. A shading lattice covers the exterior glazing with an intricate pattern that filters harsh sunlight and complements the structure.
