The overall form of my building was guided by the decision to mirror the shape of the Stanford Dish’s hills. The stacked floor plates creates a circulation that starts in the higher level and flows into the lower level. The core of the building is next to the atrium to enable central circulation and overlap of essential machinery (elevators, MEP) between floors.

Below is a building form visualization, bubble diagram, a link to the space design budget spreadsheet, a layout design draft, and a link to the 3D model.
