Fading the outlines (160)

One more classic, an exceptional building and an exceptional facade.

Rafeal de la Hoz gives us this risky solution of double skin façade where the outer open joint glass layer is only supported by glass ribs. A minimal elegant solution for such an amazing building.

Observe how the outline of the building fades into the sky thanks to the ethereal glazed aureole that surrounds it.
