CASIS Headquarters

Author(s)

Project Description

Casis is a non-profit company that manages research on the international space station. The company both educates the public about space research and represents corporations developing products in space. This duality manifests itself architecturally in the Casis Headquarters. On the lower half of the building the public circulates around the Casis program and learns about space.  Above, the public occupies the core of the building, where they are the focus of market research.  The formal wobble of the building challenges this duality and forces the public and Casis employees to interact.
