DATA CENTER IN UNITED ARAB EMIRATES
The data center consists of two main building volumes, that shelter the fundamental functions and several smaller ones that house all the auxiliary ones. The dominating building layout is a hexagon, a shape that refers to the bee hive, being the analogue natural structure that preserves the work and knowledge of its creators. In the core of the complex, an inner courtyard, preserved by the building volumes, plays the role of a hidden oasis, reminding of the elements of nature and their role in human life. It also marks a dialogue between nature and technology, since the buildings house the infrastructures of contemporary society.
