Re-use CIBA

L A B

Imagine the masses demolished with the CIBA area. One asks where does the substance go? Demolition also means releasing resources. It is always a conversion of energies, as we are in constant motion. The laboratory building with new skin, more arms and an expanded blood stream becomes the central body for its neighbourhood by supplying them with physical and virtual resources, offering them a field of experimentation. Therewith life cycles are closing. It collects and distributes. It mediates and stores. It tests and expands. By coordinating, it allows us to deal with the existing and move forward, not to start all over again, but to continue.
