English term or phrase:piling work
The structural system consists of flat slabs supported by randomly arranged supports. The skeleton and infill are clearly separated, and in order to attain optimal freedom for the infill, the structure is kept entirely to the outer perimeter. The supports are placed diagonally, providing both perpendicular strength and sustaining horizontal force to absorb earthquake tremors. In order to minimalize foundation and piling work, the current of force around the perimeter is concentrated in the central cylinder through the ³hunch² at the foot of the building. Reinforced concrete was chosen because the design would consist of the structure itself, without an exterior skin.
