The search for new forms in architectural design often leads to unexpected solutions, frequently inspired by specific themes.

An architect's idea can be sparked by anything. A famous example is Frank Gehry's crumpled napkin form or Norman Foster's two or three guiding lines, which give rise to well-known masterpieces.

In any case, deciphering the author's concept can be a good exercise for training associative thinking. The same goes for today's example. What could be more interesting than studying Martian buildings on the streets of Bordeaux? Or another colony from Star Wars.)
