“Since half of the total available site was set aside as a public square, the building had to be tall enough to accommodate the 90,000 square metres of space demanded by the brief. The decision to place structure and services on the exterior was driven primarily by the need for internal flexibility, the scheme provided huge expanses of uninterrupted space on open floors nearly 50 metres deep.”
