xBox modular system

The design strategy can be metaphorically defined as an experiment-research method which the basic concept is to develop the optimal open system model that could be upgraded and flexibly adapts to varied situations. The main goal was to define  the basic module to achive a flexible reporoduction system  of quadrants, which could be used as a basic system matrix. Depending on the position, program, and mode of capturing the light of each quadrant, they can be changed individually in the context of their primary characteristics. The latter are defined by precisely defined cut-outs, atriums and lightbulbs, which establish spatial relationships with the surroundings and form a recognizable spatial form of a highly extroverted character. It is a basic method of interpretation, stacking by unit system into a closed scheme with emphasis on the modularity of building masses and the universality of the grid.
