Steven Holl Architects - 32nd Floor Supercomputer Lobby Print E-mail
Thursday, 05 June 2008 23:52

 
Steven Holl Architects has completed a new floor for D. E. Shaw Research in Manhattan. The 3000 square feet redesign for the 32nd floor includes a porous staircase and a glass enclosure which will accommodate a supercomputer designed to execute high-speed simulations of proteins and other biological macromolecules.

As a concept for this project Steven Holl Architects studied soap bubbles and the way they mysteriously nest in clusters that always take the same angle of hexagonal geometry at 120 degrees. These hexagon patterns allow for the most effective connection of bubbles while minimizing the coverage area of the bubble cluster.
