Description Schumacher Tower:

The tower designers represent a new generation of architects. Being
responsible as associate architects for world recognised structures such as
the Water cube in Beijing and the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Germany.
Just one year ago, they founded LAVA, the Laboratory for Visionary
Architecture, a worldwide architectural network, together with architect
Alexander Rieck, innovation expert at the Fraunhofer institute in Stuttgart.

“The project brings together our previous experiences, the Mercedes-Benz
Museum, a brand-owned museum with an extraordinary spatial concept
exploring the latest digital design and fabrication technologies with the
Water cube Beijing, an example of the highest performance of both the
building and the athletes, creating by a stunning atmosphere developed
through the deliberate morphing of molecular science, architecture and
phenomenology”, says Chris Bosse.

Inspired by the geometrical order of a snowflake and the aerodynamics of
a Formula 1 racing car, the tower encapsulates speed, fluid dynamics,
future technology and natural patterns of organisation. Rather than purely
mimicking shapes in nature for their elegance and unpredictability, the
architects learned from nature’s own geometrical orders creating highly
efficient structures and intriguing spaces.
