The building designed by the Dutch architecture firm MVRDV stacks the floors like five boxes and then twists them into a spiral.
This shape gives it an organic appearance, as if it were a living thing with its own will. The impression that it is not stationary—rather, that it is moving or trying to move—gives the GYRE building a magnetic force that attracts people.
The greenery at the building entrance was installed by artist and botanist Patrick Blanc. The vibrant vegetation enveloping solid shapes creates a gentle boundary around the spiral staircase leading to the basement.
Take in the colors, shapes, and textures of the more than fifty varieties of plants, including many that are unfamiliar.
