A data center materializes its content, data, in an unrelated form to the content. How can architecture embody the abstract “idea” of data?
Located at a lush mountainous site in Korea, the data center embodies its electromagnetic signal content in the form of an institutional campus where knowledge is created. While the dispersed “bodies'' of data enhance the stability of the server system in a “high-contact-low- impact” fashion, the center immerses itself within its natural surroundings. The cloud-looking roof structures establish an efficient and resilient cooling network system that will generate a microecosystem around it.
