The podium, with its softly filleted edges, provides a proportionate base to the towers sitting above. Uniting the two tower wings is the centrally placed circulation core— a grand statement in exposed concrete work with glass slits.
All components remain true to their individual purpose, while holding hands to create an aesthetic whole. As one looks up, the podium with its artistically placed fenestration and the tower with its blue tinted glass and louvered fins, together seem to form a beautifully orchestrated instrument.
