“Clockwork Coffee Box” was submitted for the Cypress International Competition for Inventive Architecture: Reinterpret. Later the project was remodeled for the Visual Representation class at Cornell University.
I decided to go beyond a traditional understanding of a coffee shop and have its middle two floors rotating so that the building is constantly reinterpreting its shape. The shape comes from a 14-meter cube standing on one of its corners and sliced into four floors. The second and the third floors rotate around the vertical circulation core which hosts coffee bar, staircase, elevator and mechanical systems.
