Text by Matthew Turner: On a plinth containing a half sunken car park, two buildings relating to each other are developed, facing each other over a basketball court. The vertical one is attached to the tall silo, contains a youth hostel, with rooms in the cells of the silo. An equivalent sized horizontal building is a student residence.   The buildings have faceted wall/roofline which is claimed to face views, or have better orientation. A public square is included in the corner of the site.
