Structurally, the intent has always been to be as light on the earth as possible. In order to support a building that grows out from one side as we move vertically up, and an atrium that grows in height as we move horizontally, a state of the art, lightweight structural system has been devised for construction. Slanting Cross bracing columns which also support the glass have been used cohesively with the building concept and form. The building envelope consist of two types of interlocking triangular units: top hung units and propped units, which are supported along the bottom edge. At the three sides of each panel, movements have to be allowed while air- and water tightness are provided.
The design has been acknowledged and published over various architectural magazines and journals.
