The abstract pictorial shapes of different artistic innovations of the 20th century have an evident influence on contemporary architecture. We can easily recognize geometric abstraction in facades built on the basis of flat, monochrome, volume-less geometric shapes.
Another more lyrical type of abstraction, is the base of the building’s skin that concerns us this month. When geometry gives way to formal freedom, without recognizable figures or symmetries, this is when good taste, an appreciation of balance and harmony and a good compositional criterion come into play.
The façade that occupies us is in this sense a true work of art, where formal freedom expresses balance and beauty. We can observe rhythm in the relationships between the different pieces, which share some size and shape criteria.
The façade has an expressive function and is a symbol of the expressions of artistic freedom that the building contains, attempting to avoid the simple and mathematical rigor of geometric abstraction.
This type of façade requires a high level of customization, given the complexity of its design and the required sunlight requirements on the different sides of the building. The flexibility provided by the prior computer-aided design and the material used in the coating allows perfect adaptation to the volume of the building.
