"From a distance the structure has the appearance of a window looking into the depths of outer space," Asif Khan said in a statement, "As you approach it, this impression grows to fill your entire field of view. So on entering the building, it feels as though you are being absorbed into a cloud of blackness."


I love this so very very much. It presses all of my geeky buttons: visual tricks, clever materials, alternative architecture, light/dark interplay and metaphors, interactive water features, and an utter lack of utility.

I love it love it love it.
