The project examines a structural novelty which works on the basis of natural systems such as corals, foam, or skeletons. Through combining bubbles of different sizes to a structural cage, a highly stable and efficient structure is achieved, which leaves the inner space of the highrise column-free. As in a natural system, structure and facade create a unit. It’s like shaking balls in a box until they reach a maximum density.
