We mentioned the Moulmein Rise Residential Tower last year when awarded the 2007 Aga Khan for Architecture. Now we can refresh our mind with the video that show us some of its innovative details.
“This high rise residential project was designed in 1999. 50 apartments are provided in a slim tower 28 storeys tall. The design examined the high-rise building as an urban object and as envelope. To create a more interesting facade, yet giving functional advantages to the units, 3 facade types were developed that mixed and matched modular functional elements – full height windows, planters and bay windows. These were combined in a random order to produce a visually complex urban object.”
