Architect Neil Denari reveals the spherical building concept he developed for P.O.D.System Architecture.
For the P.O.D.System Architecture project, Dezeen and adidas commissioned five Los Angeles-based architecture firms to create a series of conceptual structures drawing from the sports brand’s recently launched P.O.D.System sneakers.
The first P.O.D.System Architecture design is a conceptual live-work complex by Neil M Denari Architects called adidasphere. Denari says the design references the P.O.D.System shoe’s distinctive outsole, which is made up of three components, each featuring a different shock-absorbing technology.
“Our inspiration for the project was primarily the way in which individual elements come together to make a whole,” he explains in the movie, which Dezeen filmed for adidas Originals in Los Angeles.
