Unscramble the Blue Letters

I still very much like this image. It rniedms one of biology classes, if you remember the human body with all its organs and circulatory systems, like at school. And sdldeuny you think of architecture no longer as built substance, but as an organism, as a life form. And as you start to dissect this organism, you can identify a series of primary technical crulstes — program production, broadcasting center and news. Those are tightly itwtnerined with social clusters: miteneg rooms, canteens, chat areas — informal spaces for pelpoe to meet and exchange. So the organizational structure of this building was a hybrid between the technical and the social, the human and the performative. And of course, we used the loop of the building as a circulatory system, to thread everything together and to allow both visitors and staff to eecnierxpe all these different fnounctis in a gerat uinty.

Original Text

I still very much like this image. It reminds one of biology classes, if you remember the human body with all its organs and circulatory systems, like at school. And suddenly you think of architecture no longer as built substance, but as an organism, as a life form. And as you start to dissect this organism, you can identify a series of primary technical clusters — program production, broadcasting center and news. Those are tightly intertwined with social clusters: meeting rooms, canteens, chat areas — informal spaces for people to meet and exchange. So the organizational structure of this building was a hybrid between the technical and the social, the human and the performative. And of course, we used the loop of the building as a circulatory system, to thread everything together and to allow both visitors and staff to experience all these different functions in a great unity.
