Waste-Plex Office / Office Building

Waste-Plex Office
Waste-Plex Office

The Waste-Plex Office Park is an office complex built on a reclaimed landfill of industrial and construction waste. When the landscape in question is artificial, sterile, and even potentially hazardous, how differently must the building operate? Rather than forcing reconciliation, the proposal provides the workers with a vehicle for escape, while maintaining functional connections and interactions with the landscape as necessary. The four "cores" consist of various infrastructures encased within an envelope of monolithic concrete masses as if the fabric of the landscape has been directly extruded, but only enough to support the floor slabs.
