The building is conceived as a long, rectangular block, with a folding / rectangular metal skin extending from the south elevation through the roof and the north elevation. The east and west elevations, framed on three sides by the thickness of the metal skin, are designed as the building visitors’ interfaces with external spaces and uses. The west façade is transparent and ethereal while at the same time integrating solar and glare control in the glazing component.
