The strategy for the building enclosure consists of creating an OPTICAL ILLUSION.
The facades feature two layers of customized aluminum extrusion profiles on top of a back layer of composite aluminum cladding.
The vertical profiles of the top layer are straight; but those of the back layer are angled. This results in a wave-like appearance, which changes with the viewpoint of the spectator (Moiré effect).
