The exterior utilizes a secondary structure of glass. The outer wall is printed with an overlapped pattern of square dots, creating a moire effect. During the evening, the architecture glows like a mystical object, unlike its expression during the day. It is neither lit from the outside nor spilling light from the inside. It stands as if the architecture itself is emitting a new kind of energy.
