Text by Matthew Turner: Five corten-clad boxes/paraboloids are added to the site.  Three are 3 or 4 storey pavilions placed around the base of the tall silo, and contain apartments, with work spaces on the ground floor. A fourth is a parking house (parking is also indicated in an underground car park, no access shown). The fifth sits on top of the high silo, and houses a destination bar and viewing point, reached by three routes up the building; one a climbing wall, one an enfilade of gallery spaces, and the third a vertical park with places to relax.
