As a speculative venture, the budgetary requirements were in play from the outset and careful attention had to be paid as to how and where design elements were executed. A few simple rules were established which helped guide the project forward.

Article source: Architect Show Co.,Ltd

This was an existing residential lot with homes on the east, west, and south. Across the street to the north is a park. We began work on the design using the primary concept of harmonization with the park’s lush greenery. We tried to create a facade design that incorporated a lot of the park’s greenery, where local people gathered to relax.

BUBBLE BUILDING in Shanghai, China by 3GATTI ARCHITECTURE STUDIO

Friday, October 25th, 2013

Article source: 3GATTI ARCHITECTURE STUDIO

When I moved to from Rome to Shanghai I noticed many environmental differences. One was the fact that when I looked out the window here, it didn’t give me the same good feeling like it usually did in Rome. It was probably a combination of the grey buildings, the immortal grey sky and the fact you couldn’t open the window due to the outside air pollution.
