Datacenter, the grid – Identity
 
This datacenter is based on a uniform envelope that can evolve in size and express a bold identity. It adheres to the idea of a 2.5 m three-dimensional grid, which covers all buildings and landscape with an infinite pattern that stands at the crossroads of modular construction techniques and the imaginary digital realm. The modular envelope is composed of standard structural elements commonly used in industrial architecture. The modular unit can evolve in size in accordance to the site and the clients’ requirements. The grid outlines the boundaries of the structure and the parking lot transforming the datacenter into a digital object: a minimal and abstract volume that is perceived only by its outline. Between Sol Lewitt, Superstudio and the world of Tron, the square grid is built up as a symbolic figure by the values of the virtual realm: advance technology, speed, knowledge, and experimentation. A world that makes us harder, better, faster and stronger.
