Kuggen / Wingårdh Arkitektkontor

A cylindrical, distinctive building [Wingårdh Arkitektkontor] in the middle of the town square is an urban planning motif with roots in the Italian Renaissance. The form offers lots of floor space in relation to the amount of exposed exterior wall surface, and the upper floors project out over the lower—more on the south side than on the north, so that the building partially shades itself when the sun is high in the sky. A rotating screen shades the top floors, following the sun’s path around the building — via ArchDaily
