A commission to design the façade of an existing tower, this project posed several constraints in terms of its built structural framework. The simple geometric grid acts as a visual membrane which veils the framework beneath. The network of glass randomly alternates between a highly reflective type and a transparent sort. The grid utilizes different window sizes to increase the resolution of this pixelated façade.
