Authors’ Comment

We enjoyed designing the totems of the well known Bucharest Business Park. Rather inertial, we used corten® in order to accentuate the reddish nuances of the building.
Furthermore, we emphasised the idea of flexibility of any office building – where the tennants come and leave periodically – by proposing an ordering grid, which permits future permutations. By letting this grid transparent, the sight can pass through the thick layers of metal sheet and activate a dynamic perception of the rectangular object.
The main totem from the DN1 highway adopts a similar demateriazing techique. In this case we used the same grid for the night lighting to mark the acces to the office building.
We thank CA Immo for this opportunity!
