Architecture Monday

This is a neat little high-rise tower that wears its expression on its sleeve – in a sense literally, for that expressive exterior is an outer shell for the glass tower within.

But that’s not all, because that smooth and curvaceous form is also the building’s primary structure, which allows the floors inside to be column free.  It also shades the building with an air gap, bringing relief from heat gain.

And no surprise, the form is equally evocative from within the building…

As I said, neat!
