The building is an example of Brutalist architecture, a popular architectural style in the 1970s.

It is designed to be a symbol of strength and permanence, and its structure consists of two semi-circular reinforced concrete cores as well as three lateral girders which helped make construction faster. The building is divided into three sections due to the steel trusses being constructed off-site and were put into position.
