Красный кристалл / Red Crystal — starting out from a scale beyond the usual definitions of a traditional urban block. Zooming out to reach a starting point for a top-down procedure, the urban structure as well as the formative design for the user undergo a change. Keyword discussions were oscillating around the development of dynamic buoyancy, torque, pressure-type or compression...a pealing out of the urban pattern with its already inherent connections leads to a continuous verticalspinning and thus a flushing over the Sky Square. Hence a relocation and giving-back to the user strategy is created. The Red Chrystal is thus framed by the city and functions at the same time as a large scale popover-effect wherein the design is ambassador between both — the in- and the outsider of the megastructure.
