AE Interest:
ArchDaily Building of the year (2016) for commercial architecture; thought provoking facade: sharp steel panels lined with soft, perforated, rounded copper; opaque windows impose reflection; roof becomes a canopy that masks the building except for in a few places; canopy juts out from building; cultural message at play: calm and welcoming interior juxtaposes sharp reflective exterior [a]
