the difficult task of seamlessly interweaving the old structure and the new construction has been accomplished in this project. through an analogue gesture of urban planning as an appropriate reaction to the old structure using different means of urban as well as architectural planning, the architects achieved the sufficient separation of old and new, on the one hand, and an artistically contained structure that enhances each of the individual sections, on the other. the staggered arrangement achieved through the use by means of thin slabs conveys a balanced relationship between quiet calm and dynamics.
