The D-Tower is a project where the intensive (feelings, qualia) and the extensive (space, quantities) start exchanging roles, where human action, color, money, value, feelings all become networked entities.

The panels are insulated with milled styrofoam then covered with epoxy. The fact that the double curved structure still has repetition in it (some panels repeat four times, others two or three, some are unique) makes non-standard affordable without reducing it to flat planes and cilinders.

On the whole "happiness" is 45% of the time in first place, "hate" is a good second with 30%, "love" only 20%"/Lars Spuybroek
