When I first saw the images of this building, the first thing that came to mind was that the mothership has landed and this is what it looks like. Naturally, I thought it was just my overactive imagination again but it turns out that was actually the inspiration behind the design!
The building was designed with by a studio with one of the most fitting names, Supermachine, though Im surprised that they don’t even have a website, just a blog.
Website or not, the studio created this dynamic piece of architecture for Wyne Sales Gallery located in Thailand. The main idea behind the building was, “to take a large, long structure, and hover it above the ground so people will access the building from ground stair ways leading up into the space”. Supermachine abstractly describes the concept as a spaceship hovering above ground, barely touching the earth with it’s ladder.
