Transforming the star. The pentagonal shape of the site for the ESC has seduced our design team to connect the corners of the site as to form an a-symmetrical 5 pointed star. By categorically lifting up two point of the star and leaving the third at ground floor level, we discovered a strong spatial image for the ESC. Braking the symmetrical rigidity of the communist red star, and replacing it by a set of 5 connected tetrahedron shaped pyramids, we transformed the star shape and gave it a new meaning.
