A high tech building inspired by insect wings.The construction is based on the latest surfboard and boat building technology.

The organic stair design brings you to the heart of the building providing a poetic light and magnificent spatial experience.

This optimistic building design stands for a strong belief in technological innovation combined with environmental care.

It's situated near one of the main roads entering Kortrijk, a small city in Belgium.As a symbol for its high technological enterprises this building represents the futuristic and hip character of the city.

(1)"A regular hexagon has all sides of the same length, and all internal.  A regular hexagon has 6 rotational symmetries and 6 reflection symmetries making up the dihedral group. The longest diagonals of a regular hexagon, connecting diametrically opposite vertices, are twice the length of one side. Like squares and triangles, regular hexagons fit together without any gaps to tile the plane(three hexagons meeting at every vertex), and so are useful for constructing tessellations. The cells of a beehive honeycomb are hexagonal for this reason and because the shape makes efficient use of space and building materials. The Voronoi diagram of a regular triangular lattice is the honeycomb tessellation of hexagons. It is not usually considered a triambus, although it is equilateral."
