WoZoCo Inspired?

October 13, 2009

Its really impressive how many apartment projects have been influenced by MVRDV's WoZoCo... The Lanserhofwiese Residential Project by Wimmer Zaic Architects is an interesting project, almost looking fake the way its perched atop those spindly legs. Intended as a high density housing solution, providing interest and interaction with its neighbors, it seems somewhat, although not entirely successful. Obviously, the neighbors will be intrigued by the project (and its bright colors!), but the building actually seems somewhat isolated to me. It could be plopped down on any flat lot anywhere in the world... It doesn't seem to me as if its interacting with the neighborhood at all.
What do you all think?
