- Concept Design
The concept of the design is to reinforce through imagery the relationship between the building, the occupants and the city in which it is located. We have taken the identity of Almaty, the town of apples, and generated a design response based on the structure of the apple and the process which is undertaken in revealing the contents.
The principle of organic growth is further reinforced by the presence of water. The water is an important component of the entry sequence into the building and also provides a setting which establishes connection to natural elements.
