I found enormous silos, a tall smokestack, four kilometres of underground tunnels, and machine rooms in good shape. This was twenty five years ago and it was my first encounter with the Cement Factory.
I already imagined future spaces and noticed that the different aesthetic and plastic tendencies that had developed since World War 1 were present in this factory.

I was surprised twice when I first visited the Daekyoung Factory. The first surprise was the beautiful scenery of the mouth or the river of the Nakdong River, and the second surprise was that the beautiful scenery could not be seen at all from the factory complex. There were three buildings in the complex, with two buildings lined up on parallel lines, making a rectangular plaza. The plaza was busy, with many workers passing by. The third building was placed perpendicularly with the plaza, blocking the scenery towards the sea. I felt sorry for the factory workers, who are so close to the beautiful scenery, but could not even see it.

Industrial culture can only come about when existing economic and functional practical constraints are successfully transformed into multidimensional design.
The Funder Werk factory building, a paper coating factory, is functionally determined by the process of production. It was to be metamorphosed into “expressive architecture.” The design concept was based on the idea of dismantling the production hall into sculpturally shaped elements. During the design process, the power station with its chimneys, the media bridge, the flying roof, the office and laboratory areas, and the entrances emerged as differentiated, interconnected architectural elements that endow the complex as a whole with an unmistakable head and body. The playful sculptural evocation of the power station with the “dancing chimneys,” the media bridge as a connection between energy and production, the free design of the flying roof as “wings,” the shaped canopies of the entrances, and the corner of the laboratory and office areas dissolved in glass towards the south, all stand out against the hall, which has been consciously kept white and simple.

The composition for both proposals are a series of torqued surfaces with composite component assemblies as it main feature. These assemblages are dynamic members of a formal complexity that resonate with the image of speed and the Lamborghini stealth body. Roundabout proposal one is focused on the curvatures of fluid dynamics expressed in solid form. Theses curvatures flow around the monument where the viewer can experience these torqued envelopes through its spaces that it creates. Roundabout proposal two is conceptualized to resemble features in the current Lamborghini models. The features of interest are the elegance of the engine and vector geometric shelled surface. It combines these elements into a configuration of flight and shelter. In conclusion both operate as a nexus of stealth dynamics and matrix vertices for Lamborghini.

The project facility is inside an integrated canned pickle factory production and storage complex of 72 acres land located in Kemalpasa district of Izmir, Turkey. The north-south axis orientation and the east façade shaped as an arc follows the stream path, the other facades are linear due to the lot’s perimeter. The main axis where the supplies are dropped off separates this area from the rest. During the design process the main two determinants were the climate conditions and the different user’s programmatic needs. Therefore, the interior organization and the general form of the multi functional administrative facility program is governed by these two. The organization of the complex including the main entrance of the facility, the security building, the parking lot, the product drop off and the social facility is re-designed to interconnect the programs. The disturbance on the south facade from direct sunlight during long summer hours affecting the comfort is eliminated through the use of concrete as the building’s structural support which is designed as a curtain wall system. The system is continuous all around and shadows the façade windows. The west facade is designed with a secondary wall layer creating limited visual access to the factory. The building is consisted of four levels; first floor, conference hall and meeting rooms, second floor, general offices, third floor, administrative offices, fourth floor, guest welcome area and common spaces, and the intermediate space becoming an interior garden.The internal spaces are flexible; the diversely programmed rooms are separated with demountable partitions which allows for future growth and change in the program needs. All the program volumes link andopento the centralatrium. Atrium space reaches until the ground level is used by multiple groups becoming both a socializing and relaxing space. It is also visible from all floors and isolates the staff from the industrial area.The vertical circulation, including the stairs and the elevator at the end of the atrium, is designed to have maximum transparency. During the use of the elevators, they are visible from all levels.

The Franchino mill stands as a metaphor waiting to become habitat, to recover its dimension, to be inhabited to say its words.
The word is mill; meaning use to grind, to pulverise, to turn the heavy things into light ones, to destroy the whole in order to achieve subtlety. It is something used to change the matter into a different thing, the flour of language, a way of naming us.
