The perforated aluminum skin fulfills both functional and ornamental roles. Functionally, the skin shades the building, reducing summer heat gain, while framing views from inside. The louvered scaffold that supports the aluminum panels deepens with height, providing more shade for the sunnier upper floors. The metal skin also becomes more porous with height, acknowledging the improved views and the decreasing need for privacy. The pattern's density fluctuates from floor to floor in order to accommodate the variety of lighting conditions desired by different occupations, especially within the design field (a brighter floor would appeal to a design company, while a video game company requires low light levels).
