Square and Tower Woermann

Woermann Tower is a virtual forest from which to enjoy the utopia of living immersed in a hybrid landscape. The city is displayed in full harmony with that idea, a forest of natural and artificial shadows without scale, but also a header Atlantean admired the landscape that includes ground floor and ground folds yielding to pedestrians to stand on their public facilities up to the treetops. We hope with this plant and anthropomorphic conception to represent the culture of our time, the tower is intended to embody the illusions Woermann, desires and fantasies of a society that seeks to find compromise between nature and development, a form of intense and faithful landscape: another beauty.
