Have you guys seen the new adidas Laces R&D building? If not here is a look at the Kada Wittfield Architecture designed structure that is now up and running at corporate headquarters in Herzogenaurach, Germany. The name “Laces” pertains to the design of the building in which walkways within the building connect and criss-cross with each other in a networked pattern. An excerpt from the press release sheds more light. (Images and info: Collabcubed.)
The building forms a loop. Suspended walkways cross the atrium space, “lacing” the building’s structure together like the laces of a sports shoe. The walkways connect individual departments within the building complex, making for greater proximity and preventing the disruptive effect of people walking through offices.
