The Instant Response Initiative Headquarters

The HQ entrance comprises of two facades. A horizontal, urban topography designed to cope with a flood of people in emergencies, and a vertical representation of the current safety level within the city, constantly fluctuating and updating through colour coding, day and night. The surfaces are made of differing materials. A galvanized zinc shell and aluminium boxes hold the LED lighting in the vertical wall, whereas the topography is built from concrete slabs, strategically placed on a steel frame, multiplied and positioned to react to the undulating surface.
