Roy Peer has designed a concept building in Detroit that merges the past and the future into one. The entire structure looks extremely apocalyptic, exuding hope for the future as well as symbolizing past destruction.
The project continually questions the role of the city in the future, and how people will relate to a booming metropolis. Titled 'Tertiarization: Pessimist and Optimist,' the design "seeks to reflect the city while creating a dynamic that allows the architecture to change depending on the city," and vice-versa according to DesignBoom.
While optimism does come through in terms of certain lighting Roy Peer has used for this project, overall the look exudes an uneasy feeling about what the future might bring.
