why "art code" ?

In architecture, the facade of a building is often the most important from a design standpoint, as it sets the tone for the rest of the building. Art code is now being used by a new generation of architecture designers to explore innovative ways of generating form and translating ideas in a wide range of creative architectural disciplines

Bella Sky Hotel by 3xn

danish architecture practice 3XN has completed 'bella sky hotel', a new landmark accommodation and conference center in copenhagen, denmark. situated between the old city core and orestad - copenhagen's growth center - the project is an extension of the bella center, and injects the site with a fresh urban identity. 
consisting of two asymmetrical towers, the hotel's form is read in a completely different manner depending on the vantage point. the structure tapers down to a slim set of footprints and inclinesin opposite directions. as a result, all 814 rooms obtain an unobstructed view of the flat landscape.
serving as a visual landmark on the site, the towers are distinguished by a dynamic and graphic skin of white triangular panels. even from a great distance, the slightly pixelating effect is clearly read. the lobby, which merges into the existing entrance of the bella center, causes a twist of the ground floor, resulting in a dramatic street presence for the hotel.
