Porocity - Opening Up Solidity - The Why Factory

Author(s): Winy Maas E.a.

urbanism | NAI010

Our cities consist of buildings that are introverted and not mixed with urban life. They are closed. How to open them? How can we introduce pockets for encounters, for streams of circulation, for green areas, for tunnels of cooling...? What logics can be imagined in our towers to allow for this openness? Using stepped floors? Creating grottos? Splitting towers? Twisting blocks? Every hypothesis leads to a series of interventions. How far can we go before the tower collapses, before it is unaffordable? Together, these series form an army of towers that contributes to a more porous city.
