Lacy Architecture for Indian High Rise

Symhomes MK1 by Piercy Conner Architects created this winning design for the Living Steel design contest. The project is located in the West Bangor City of Kolkata, India. The lacy exterior is part of the engineering for keeping interior temperatures cool in area where temps can reach 111 degree F. I think it's quite lovely, and a great improvement on utilitarian high rise construction.
