. Project strated as a design for high-rise building situated at the Nusle bridge's north end. The area is well-known for the heavy traffic comming in and out of Prague city and also its position overlooking part of Nusle district.

. The design priorities were focused on regulating the insulation through adjustable skin and the aerodynamics for wind flow control. Woven structures are commonly known as lightweight fiber compositions with strong characteristics, such as density and pattern variations, overall structure flexibility and tensile strength. While experimenting with simple sine curve sequencing and fiber repetition a woven net-like structure has been generated. Further repositioning of fiber junctions created slightly condensed pattern sections with lifted fiber volumes. These adjustments may be advantageous while dealing with air flow control along the skin. So far the project has been kept in a form of experimental shape changing surface, consisting of hollow fibres, reinforced by electroreological liquid, and adjusted by sliding fiber links.
