Vertical City / chapter 3
The consideration of the structure, solar exposure, circulations and evacuation procedures are the key factors in the development of the plans.
As the core is set in the south side of the floor plan, this is defined as a circulation zone. Capsule hotel is located in this south area as well, avoiding direct solar exposure. Here the frameworks are set every 4 meters so the connection of the perimeter to the core is guaranteed at every level as well as the evacuation (i.e. the access to the protected fireproof spaces inside the core). Thereby, the north part is free in terms of framework disposition and accommodates the double or triple height spaces.
The interaction between the public and the private program of the hotel, between urban and domestic scale, is different at every level. In some floors the separation consists of a simple curtain that every user can cross, in others is a movie screen, or a glass or there is nothing in between them.
