Date Built
25 Ropemaker Street, London EC2
Arup Associates describe the building as, "... a simplified Chinese Puzzle where the sum of the parts defines the whole.  The building is composed of six large-scale interlocking cubic forms that rise up as a series of garden terraces."  There are terraces on levels 8, 12, 16 and 20.  As to the exterior, Arup add that, "Groups of projecting windows form an overlaid pattern of differential reflection and shadow across the exterior, interlaced with flat, glazed spandrel-panel zones."
