Global architecture and design studio Aedas has released renderings of LÃ¨ Architecture, a pebble-like office building based in the southeastern Nangang District of Taipei, Taiwan.
The design of the 18 story building is inspired by a moss covered pebble, and has a facade covered in greenery split into vertical chunks. Â
At night, a mixture of various lighting effects and glazed windows aims to make LÃ¨ Architecture look like a gem.
The "efficient, interactive and healthy" structure is aiming to achieve LEED Gold status and contains modifications for light shading and temperature control.
The 14,000-sq-m project has an "urban living room" along with kitchens, libraries and "brainstorming spaces".
The project client is Earnest Development & Construction Corporation.
"Pebbles that stay close to the riverbanks always have a green coat of mosses, giving the polished stones a unique texture," said Aedas, according to Inhabitat.
The company added that the building’s egg-like shape "implies that it is an incubator of knowledge".
The project is due to be completed in 2017.
