Ballet Towers

Sacramento, CA

The Ballet Towers were named after dancing movements which impliy a continuous change in proximity between different parts of the body.

 

When approached either from the Golden State Hwy or the Lincoln Hwy by Capitol Moll, the two towers outlines change shape as the observer gets close; as the space between the towers is either reduced or increased, some points of the buildings profiles seem to get closer to touch each others while other points seem to part ways.

 

The buildings are exclusively used for office while the podium level has a two stories indoor/outdoor shopping mall.

 

Underground parking would serve the office towers, while the two levels of parking above ground serve the shopping center.
