The design team created a glass pavilion at the roof terrace level shielded by the flying buttresses resulting in a sanctuary of light and stunning views through the ceramic tube facade. On the other end of the building, security was challenged by notorious “climbers” that ascended up the tower using the architectural elements as footholds. LB Enclosures provided the design and engineering of “anti-climbing” deterrents at the tower base canopies, as well as material applications and schematic design for the rooftop glass pavilion, storefronts and sunshades.
