Description Change this

Example of brutalism architecture. In the line of Paul Rudolf or even Louis Kahn. This tower of offices had an ingenious system of aeration-ventilation on the envelope. Placed between two narrow windows it went through the whole height of the building. So the multiplication of narrow hollow beams and windows closed the large rectangular open space of offices with the circulation in the centre. Today the building has been transformed, in to an ugly glass and metal box. Original in situ poured concrete has vanished.
