Team n° 17


Project description

Our duty as architects is to bring light to the remaining pieces of history. Preserving the glory of the former J.R Factory, KALEIDOSCOPE invites us to see the old in a new light and look at the new through an old lens, the factory’s eye. The play of light and colors creates harmony between the new and everpresent within the physical barrier of reach. Following the silhouette of traditional architecture the project replicates it modernly honoring the long-established style, a tribute to peace.
