This remarkable project is based on the ring geometry: two concentric circles which connect all the centre’s facilities - a peninsula which is itself a magical circle. The building (200m diameter) uses its large scale to reduce the impact on its natural setting. Raised, by up to 4.5m, on stilts, it is floating on the ground and appears to be difficult to perceive among the oaks and pines.
