Striving for something that would stand out from the masonry and brick façades of nearby buildings, architects created a light-filled, steel-frame structure that employs a juxtaposition of geometric forms crowned by a soaring atrium with an asymmetrically curving roofline. Alcoa Architectural Products’ Reynobond ACM was selected for the fascia of the building due to its formability and consistent appearance.

One of the most difficult parts of the fabrication process involved the central, curved structure that forms the nucleus of the building. The primary exterior wall enclosing the front atrium is contiguous as it curves inside the building. The transition from an exterior curtain wall and panel wall to a panel-clad interior wall is complicated. Inside the atrium, some of the column covers had to be fabricated as ovals rather than rounds, while others rise almost 50 feet in the air.
