42. Renault Centre, Westlea Down, Swindon


Dear Joel,

Stopped by to visit this well-known edifice when coming
back from England. This building was designed by
Norman Foster and completed in 1983. The building is
made up of 42 modules, 24 meters square in plan each.
Much flexibility and a powerful symbolic image are
achieved by means of these structural modules. This
module metaphoric potential is also evident when adding
the deciduous tree into the overall composition.

Best.
