Home to some of our greatest minds, the building blurs the line between interior and exterior space. A different cladding material and pattern was assigned to each of the building's functions and are seamlessly uninterrupted by the glass envelope. The black anodized aluminum plate that clads the auditorium varies in width and is capped with a fascia of the same material. This continues east in the form of a beam that supports the ends of the silver ACM beams of the atrium skylight.
