The Swiss architecture firm, Herzog & de Meuron, outfitted the building with a striking design. More than 300 irregularly arranged balconies protrude from the glass facade; in some places, the floors are inwardly offset. This creates the impression that the individual floors are stacked on or moved into one another.
