Seeing this render is on my bucket list--it'a a pretty pathetic list to be sure--and who knows what could wind up happening in this crazy world--we could all end up as white shadows on sidewalks when WW3 breaks out. So, please show the render, or a piece of the render, reflected upside down in a mirror or car window or a puddle. I don't care, just give us something to give meaning and hope to this miserable, cynical age we're in. Pretty please, with sugar on top.
Not just towers. I imagine it will involve structures of different heights and floor plate sizes. I'm mostly hoping for a strong street wall and inviting architecture at ground level. The towers are a bonus if they are well designed, but I don't much care about how tall they are.
It's not quite that famous a name. Most readers won't recognize them as "starchitects"… which will make it that much more difficult to guess, so I'm trying to be a well-intentioned wet blanket here: I'm afraid that when this is revealed that people will be disappointed…
So I'll tell you now, it's not any of the names guessed so far, and as a bonus, add MVRDV to that list.
Of course, if direct sunshine was so vital to their health, the children could simply walk a short distance to the east or west, since the shadows would presumably be relatively narrow compared to the width of the playground. But apparently any area of the park being shadowed is a deadly threat, or something. I often think that the children at that school must be reverse vampires, who would burst into flame if they are directly exposed to a shadow. Ironically, half the area of the park is already shadowed by trees.Perish the thought the little kiddies would be deprived of 30 minutes of sunshine.
