The fascination of the gigantic, empty structure of the ‘MSF’ with its decent charm casts its own spell. The raw and mechanical structure is omnipresent, underlining the experience of industry.
Inspired by its potential, beauty and elegance, the old structures will remain visible and form the framework for an experiential ‘Labscape’. The extraordinary height will be sustained in order to emphasize on the spatial experience and architectural quality. The program, dedicated to scientific research, will be implemented in a cautious and restrained manner in order to accentuate the massive and powerful MSF.
With the aim of forming the visual counterpart to the existing structure, the new design quests for a formless, invisible design.
