The building serves as an architectural “joint” that accentuates the intersection of two important thoroughfares. Due to its lapidated shape, the building becomes the focusing point of the vast open space.




The slanting surfaces in the southern and eastern sides of the building are created by a mesh on the aluminium frame that provides sun protection for the showroom windows and offices. The ventilation shaft of the underground pierces the building, protrudes upward and is used as an advertising surface. The building embraces several functions: trading and exhibition areas, offices, and a restaurant with an open-air terrace overlooking the busy intersection.
