These intersections are meeting to be the window’s frames of the building which unite the continuity of the horizontal and the vertical visual expressions of the design, mending the boundaries between the inside space of the building and the outside space making the façade a dynamic focal point to the most important aspects of the city. As the structure is the giver of light it creates a character through the building to the outside space, a contrast between lights and shadows, each space is a unique entity itself yet it gives the feeling of lingering, moving from room to room would leave one space and even though entering another, there would be an enduring trace of the one you had entered a moment ago.

It also works as an element of stability against any occurred earth quacks.
