"The vast tower transcends traditional notions of architectural programming. Disposed diagonally as well as horizontally and vertically, it is more like a city than a typical office building. Conceptually, it comprises three visually discrete structural forms that merge in a single, nonhierarchical high-rise. The building’s relentlessly sensual, undulating mass blurs visual and spatial boundaries between surface articulation, decoration, structure, and enclosure, epitomizing Díaz Alonso’s original, distinctly figurative architectural vocabulary."
