Skyscraper [1st iteration]

Running off the idea of layering that we extracted from the rock formation, we began to construct our first iteration for a skyscraper. As a group, we value the idea of forming our buildings and designs to the site, so that it is a part of the site rather than something you can pick up and move somewhere else. We were going for the design being so effective and a part of its site, that it would not "work" somewhere else. By taking this idea of layering and form to site, we began to extract the topography of the rock and build up these layers so that the building resembled the rock in some way. The layers bled into the rock, allowing people to actually walk up the building and still walk out onto the rock that is so important to the swedes.
