Concrete Made Soft ?

I could not stop looking at the seating Foster & Partners created for a bank lobby in Morocco.

The seat connects all the way to the dome above. So dramatic, so inventive and who would think that you can make concrete look so malleable.

Maybe I'm just hungry but does that look like a ginormous ladle to anyone else?

Divine, Actually now that you mention it, it does from a certain angle :)

Totally love this!! And the fluidity of the giant sculptural piece is a fantastic contrast against the smaller geometry of the windows.
