Precast concrete facades differentiate the building from the high rise
glass boxes associated with commercial buildings and acknowledge the building's non-commercial nature.
The circular patternation and circular glazing of the facade strengthen the buildings
appearance and reference the contemporary preference for non-rectilinear geometries, currently researched by the engineering community occupying the building.
