KPA Research House: Shell of Thoughts

Artur Zakharov


I found inspiration for the concept in shells and in general in the remains of living organisms. Therefore, I want to place a building in the desert, which, as if after the disappearance from this territory of water, retained various shells at the bottom, including this concrete structure. In total, these are two cylinders with carved elements, three floors from the bottom up, respectively, for relaxation, public and philosophical space. The shapes and curves of the walls remind me of swirling animal shells. Dimensions are similar to a three-story mansion with a total area of about 500 square meters. I do not want people to live here, it is a space for our KPA group in which they can work, relax, learn, spend time productively together. A lot of attention is paid to daylight.
