Fluidity, designed by architecture studio GGLab, is a public space that interprets the many possibilities that are offered to the most innovative and creative architects for sustainable design of modern cities. Today’s global society demands a greater continuity between public and private, indoor and outdoor spaces, from which new synergies arise, and lead to more dynamic urban spaces with a better relationship between cities and their inhabitants.
Fluidity uses the characteristics of ceramics to respond to these needs, creating urban elements characterised by a double skin, an outer side composed of scales that decontaminate the air combined with an inner skin of extruded ceramic tubes, the pavement folds generating benches and makes waves that interacting with the skins. The public space of the future will not be a universal and uniform space, instead will generate continuity and contiguity through the use of diverse elements and coordination of building systems, allowing and promoting simultaneous programs.
