    Viewed at a distance, 8 House looks almost like a strange landform: two vegetated roofs form a massive green "V" sloping from the ground-floor roof up to the top of the building, nine stories above.

    The parti of this mixed-use building is better understood from a bird's-eye view. In concept, the plan is a 230-meter- (750-foot-) long loop that has been twisted to form a giant, angular figure eight.
