The Collider has the challenging task of addressing an acute geometrical condition, wedged in between landscape and urban edge. On the street side it is to be the Walltopia “frontman” perceived in motion by a speeding observer, on the other it is to be the accommodating backdrop to a day spent leisurely in the park, and on the inside it is to be the catalyst stimulating numerous activities.

As a brand showpiece it needs to signify a unique identity and as an activity center for the community it needs to promote collective interaction. The first requires a formal clarity, and the second - experiential complexity. The Collider is to collide bold and iconic with fun and diverse.
