PAT GOVERNMENT COMPLEX 2-2

H created various optimal office spaces corresponding to unique characteristics of three governmental departments within the complex: the Ministry of Knowledge Economy; the Ministry of Culture and Tourism; and the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology. Different functions were cohesively unified with multi-dimensional connections including bridges and green roofs. The underside of buildings generated by pilotis structures not only creates areas of outdoor rest and recreation, but also functions as the ‘6th façade’ accommodating way-finding graphics for visitors. Dynamic ground level configurations- such as berms- meet both sustainability and security needs for the complex. As a starting point of the overall curvilinear governmental complex geometry at PAT, this Government Complex 2-2 is a significant landmark and gate for the PAT. Simultaneously, H’s design lends itself to civic programs such as parks, playgrounds and occupiable roofs.
