Scripting the Valley

The three towers of Valley have jagged floors with cantilevers and setbacks populated by greenery, creating a rocky landscape to evoke the sensation of being in a verdant valley. While the complex shape of the building creates unique spatial qualities, it poses significant challenges for the materialisation and fabrication of its façade. Natural stone cladding, laid in a seemingly random pattern, emphasises the irregular geometry. Due to the complexity of Valley’s shape and the sheer size of the project (the façade covers 42,000 square metres), manually designing this random pattern was simply not feasible. Instead, a custom computational workflow enabled the design, standardisation, and successful installation of more than 40,000 natural stone tiles.
