i have seen this before

This structure (more esthetic than practical inspired) nothing more than packaging. BUT it is really spectacular, sexy en nice construction intellect. But we see it in the structures of the Bejing 2008 stadium end Toyo Ito architecture...

Toyo Ito's Serpentine Pavelioen.

Tods store in Tokyo Toyo Ito


End similar the Prada store Herzog&Meuron


Jean Nouvel end so on.

It looks really great, but a bit small with the other buildings around it!

It's not finished. It will get much bigger before it's done.
I must say it isn't my favorite though. It looks like it is going to hatch aliens when the time is right.
