The 46-meter height and 2-by-2 plot dimensions might spark well with two distinct functional levels. Even though the ground floor was open to the public, the egg cracks floating overhead were thought of as private areas. However, the goal from the start was to arrive at a spatial scheme that was unreasonable yet, elegant, like a crayon drawing of a kid.
In a galaxy where chickens are so enormous and dominative, It would be fun to dream of a tree out of their broken eggs where people are occupying the ruins like a smirking dystopia. The form's primal origins in the upper floor spaces and their interpretation in the raw material choice can only be a metaverse-level experience as if the cracks are data centers for chickens. Further, the ground floor features elements of the desired spatial narrative, such as transforming the egg's capillaries into the stage and seating area or the entrance tunnel's passage by piercing through a snowdrift.
In this absurdity, the spontaneous journey of designing lets the users meet a very calm and neat outcome without losing the primitiveness of both the main form and the interiors, with a little pinch of technological sense of space. The process of symphonizing all the wrong and ridiculous ideas by undressing them to the zero point is where they become convincing in a non-architectural way.
