The simple trapezoidal tower is a simple and elegant solution for this sliver of land sited at a difficult junction. The shape is efficient for overcoming severe issues posed by a constrained site.

The simplicity in design belies the skill it took to create a building which could otherwise have simply been extruded vertically in the odd shape of the site itself, or, over-compensated in being over-designed. Rather, in the form of an elegantly proportioned crystal-shape tower with spliced ends set atop the podium, it has become a modest, elegant, yet, notable landmark at the junction.

Wavy glass fins on the short elevation animate the building just enough. The jury appreciates the designer’s conviction that clarity, not complexity in this case, was all that was needed for this project.
