Renderings of Bjarke Ingels Group’s latest project resemble terraced glass cubes arranged similarly to Northern Ireland’s Giant’s Causeway rock formation.
According to Inhabitat, the design is for a mixed-use development in Stockholm’s Gärdet district, commissioned by Oscar Properties. The name of the project is 79 & Park, located next to Stockholm’s Royal National City Park.
Composed of 140 apartments, the project is primarily residential. The ground floor will host commercial spaces, while the southwest corner will contain a public viewing platform.
About the cascading placement of the cubes, BIG tells Dezeen that “the massing is visually reduced through a language of pixels, scaled to the human form.”
