Just like a “house” is never a “home” without people living in it, a commercial building is never complete without a tenant. Unique concepts and contents of each tenant fulfill the building space and complete the architecture. The traces of bubbles across the envelope express each tenant’s ballooning identity and ideas, while serving as the main structural frame and the building façade.
