To celebrate the city's dedication to the popular German movement, Salzburg- and Beijing-based architecture studio Penda reveals its conceptual designs for a Bauhaus-style building. The proposed tower is 116 meters high, has 18 floors and offers an agreeable juxtaposition between greenery and construction materials. The strongest aesthetic embellishments of the Bauhaus-style building are, of course, the modular archways and terraces that constitute the facade of the structure.
Intricate and rhythmic, Penda's repetitious arrangement is truly visually striking. While the "hand-laid brickwork [...] references the masonry [...] in Jaffa," each of the long balconies offers shade to the unit below. With an emphasis on greenery, the Bauhaus-style building truly pays tribute to the German movement and the city that embraces it with over 4,000 structures.
