“an imposing, ethereal, jewel box”
In a city where glass cladded buildings are springing at every corner, it is so refreshing to see this beautiful concrete structure. The design team’s research resulted in a building that is responsive to the existing environmental conditions. The perforated shell of the building will allow for much needed ventilation and light, the solar panels and rain water collection will address the city’s water and power supply shortages. Hopefully, this will be a start of a new wave of design thinking.
