This building facade presents an optical illusion of overlapping rectangular panels. However all panels were "M" shaped, and the effect was achieved by stepping the panel thickness on the outer face by up to 90mm. This was achieved using custom designed steel moulds. These panels provided an exoskeleton structure and had a total thickness of up to 400mm. Corbels on the inside of the panels supported the flooring system across the building.
