The Unique Hexagonal Cell Building
This conceptual building design was submitted to a UN memorial competition for the city of Chungiu in South Korea. The project was awarded third place to the architectual studio ACME.
Notes about the building (via Inhabitat):
The structure is built from hexagonal cells on the exterior as well as throughout the interior. Built as a metaphor for how the UN operates and functions, this memorial space is meant to â€œrepresent the nature of the organization, where many different nations come together to create one entity, but without losing their individual identities.â€ Inside there are two conference halls, a theater, an exhibition space and an assembly hall for 1,500 people. The cellular design will also serve as a multi-function meeting space and house offices, restaurants, meeting and educational space as well as public viewing platforms.
