The building has a total surface area of 58,576 m² on 10,555 m² site. The building has a total surface area of approximately 14,000 m². The twisted architectural form is encased in a complicated and changeable geometric skin.
The shapes and forms adjust as the tower twists and turns, which has also been reflected in the way the building is illuminated. Indirect lighting hidden behind the skin structures have been custom made (named flux capacitor -inspired from the Back to the Future Film) from intense light from the bottom, fading out towards the top.
This has been contrasted with direct light following the hexagonal shapes at the top, slowly cascading and fading out towards the bottom. Enhancing the depth and complexity of this iconic structure.
