The building explores the idea of equity through flattened spacial hierarchies. It has a billboard facade to the highway while contemporary material and structural use articulate the facade at the entrance.

Phaidon. 2004:639 attributes the building to INQ ARCHITECTS who are not listed in the register so it is probably ING JACKSON ARCHITECTS.
