Scalelessness / Beijing | Miroslava Brooks
I found the three buildings, Performing Arts Center by Paul Andreu, National Olympic Stadium by HdM, Ai Weiwei, Arup and CCTV Headquarters by OMA, fascinating for their uncanny ability to confuse one’s perception of scale. They disguise their true size by smooth monolithic paneling (Performing Arts Center), elaborate structural lattice (National Olympic Stadium), or hyper-scaling of structure to the point of super-graphic (CCTV). Especially from a distance, they appear scaleless.
