Permeability is key in COMPLEX CITY's lace-effect proposal for Poly Morphisme 

Poly Morphisme - a public multipurpose hall - was conceived to adapt in an organic way to the surrounding environment. This competition entry by COMPLEX CITY was designed to harmonise with the existing vegetation, the commercial axis and with the local school building. The lightness of the building's skin allows it to breathe by day and to exhale by night.

During the day, light permeates through the building's porous facade whilst by night the structure projects the light produced by the events that take place within. Circulation is such that the central hall acts as the main attraction, described by Olivier Brouillard of COMPLEX CITY as ‘the lung of the city, as cultural activities take place and gather together the citizens'.
