A beautiful self-referential dark mirror glass tower set on a plaza. The plan is similar to a curved set of brackets, with one side smooth and scalloped, punctured only by small rectilinear verandah holes and the other with an elegant twin set of bows punctuated by a square grid pattern. At the base, a services and back entrance is defined in a block of patterned metal.
