Changing Façade

I have been looking in to the idea that the exterior foot print of a building should be controlled by its interior space requirements.  So I found it quite interesting to find that this place’s, Kiefer Technic Showroom designed by Ernst Giselbrecht + Partner, ground-plan has been determined by its façade.

The article I read on Architonic states – “The structure of the façade also determined the ground-plan; the greater the number of window axes in a room, the more important the function of the user.”  The façade arrangement changes continuously turning the structure from merely a building in to a sculpture.

I quite like the idea of elements of a space changing to accommodate individual users when they need it, and am contemplating looking in to including it in my design library.
