In 2014, BIG Bjarke inglels won an architectural competition to expand audemars piguet’s historic premises in switzerland so BIG and his team wanted to designed a spiral-shaped glass pavilion to complement the company’s oldest building,
So BIG designed it in a way that dazzles everyone who visited it ,the spiral shaped pavilion rises on walls of structural curved glass . integrated with the landscape and the glazing entirely supports the steel roof , while a brass mesh runs along the external surface to regulate light and also temperature . and there is a green roof further helps regulate temperature , while absorbing water.
And we notic through the pictures that the curved glass walls converge clockwise towards the spiral’s center, before moving in the opposite direction. in this way, visitors travel through the building as they would through the spring of a timepiece , so that he says in one of his famous sentences .‘watchmaking like architecture is the art and science of imbuing metals and minerals with energy, movement, intelligence and measure to bring them to life in the form of telling time,’
