down from the skies and spiralling into each other, creating leisure spaces for the city.The changing morphology offers different qualities to the user, from views over the sea and the city at the top of the towers, to gardens and pools at the lower parts of the building. Water is the constant theme all throughout; a kilometre long river flows from end to end, and a water taxi takes the visitor through the different spaces and activities.
