The concept behind “Steel Ellipse” is simple; Steel is one of the most used construction materials, its beauty can be perceived in many ways. This particular award seeks to achieve its beauty by presenting a highly polished surface that reflects its environment, so it does not stand on its own but relies on adjacent objects/surfaces to “shine”, pretty much like finished steel in architecture, without other materials it cannot perform aesthetically. Designers always look for a dynamic way of presenting functional aesthetic solutions, their whimsical forms must respond to a function, “Steel Ellipse” has been cut at an angle so it will never be perceived in a symmetrical way, any angle it presents will never be the same as the previous one, in this way it symbolizes today’s architecture work, one which always strives to perform better and stand out on its own.
